Low Carbon

Wales is a global leader in alternative fuels and ultra low carbon applications including:

  • Hybrid systems
  • Kinetic energy recovery
  • Second generation biofuels
  • Hydrogen
  • Electric vehicles

Welsh Government has pledged to make Wales a low-carbon economy. That ambition has meant an investment in skills and research, matched with a desire to innovate.

Wales demonstrates excellence in innovation for fuel technology – here are some examples.

The Hydrogen Centre at the University of South Wales is a focal point for new research, development and demonstration of hydrogen energy technology in Wales, and a centre for collaboration with industrial partners.

The Centre for Automotive & Power System Engineering (CAPSE), also based within the University of South Wales is a nationally recognised independent research, development, test and certification house with a reputation for cutting-edge research.

The Materials Research Centre is one of the UK’s leading centres for materials teaching and research. The internationally leading research conducted at Swansea University is funded by prestigious organisations such as Rolls Royce, Airbus, the European Space Agency, and Tata Steel.

The Electrical Vehicle Centre of Excellence at Cardiff University focuses its research activities on all aspects of electrical vehicles including design and manufacture; innovative business models; consumer expectations; energy supply and charging infrastructure.
