Imperial College London and Chinese state owned National New Energy Vehicle Technology Innovation Center (NEVC) agreed to collaborate in the development of new technology to be used in new energy vehicles, according to reports in China.

The NEVC, headquartered in Beijing, was established in 2018 and is the only nationwide automobile innovation centre approved by the Ministry of Science and Technology.

New energy vehicles in China include alternative fuel vehicles such as electric and plug in hybrid vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles which together account for a rapidly growing share of global vehicle production.

The two partners will collaborate in the development of new lightweight materials and applications, hydrogen technology and fuel cells. Initially they will focus on exchanging ideas and insights, before establishing joint R&D and innovation programmes as well as co-hosting related events.

The partnership ultimately aims to accelerate innovation through incubator companies, attract investment in emerging technologies and generate intellectual properties.
