Establishing a national Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies

The UK government’s former Department of Trade and Industry (now BIS – Department for Business Innovation and Skills) wanted to establish a low carbon centre of excellence to support the growth of the UK automotive sector.

Beta was commissioned to undertake a feasibility study to support this concept, which recommended a national centre providing a focus for innovation, skills and the development of new technologies.

Following the feasibility phase, Beta brought together a team of experts to implement the creation of the centre by developing a business plan, setting up the operating systems and recruiting a CEO.

Further support from Beta has also helped the centre (Cenex), to establish a sustainable foundation for future growth by providing business advice, access to networks and knowledge of public funding opportunities.
