UK Government Backs Two Scottish Green Projects

More than half a million in UK funding for two Scottish green projects

The UK Government has announced £508,665 for two projects in Thurso, Scotland – Thurso+ and AcouBat, led by industry partner AMTE Power.

Due to the surge of demand from customers for  electric vehicles battery cells, AMTE Power’s Thurso+ project is increasing its battery cell production facility in Thurso. They are identifying opportunities to boost manufacturing productivity and supply battery cells to specialist vehicle manufacturers.

The funding awarded will provide a real boost to scale electric vehicle battery production in Scotland and drive improvements in battery testing, creating thousands of jobs for Scotland and assist the move towards a low carbon transport future.
