ESCAPE is a £20M consortium project which aims to establish a globally unique and cohesive end-to-end supply chain capability for innovative SiC power electronics. Partially funded by the Collaborative Research and Development (CR&D) programme delivered by the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), it is designed to service UK and global end user demand.
The consortium partners include such as McLaren Applied, AESIN, Clas-SiC, Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult, Compound Semiconductor Centre, Exawatt, Lyra Electronics, MaxPower Semiconductor, Microchip Inc, Tribus-D, TPS, The University of Warwick. It aims to establish a globally unique and cohesive end-to-end supply chain capability for innovative SiC power electronics designed to service UK and global end user demand.
The project will support the drive for electrification in the UK and globally, enabling the transition towards net zero emissions. ESCAPE will safeguard 66 jobs in engineering and 71 jobs in manufacturing.
• A multi-million pound project, creating/safeguarding 66 jobs in engineering and 137 jobs in Engineering and Manufacturing
• The project will build a secure UK end-to-end supply chain capable of competing globally
• ESCAPE will create unique technology supporting the drive for electrification UK and worldwide
• Successful exploitation of ESCAPE will result in over £66M further UK investment in SiC R&D and capital expenditure
