About us

The Centre for e-Mobility and Clean Growth (CEMR) is aligned to the global challenges related to the decarbonisation of the transport and energy sectors. Our research is based around lithium batteries, power electronics and electric drives, supercapacitors and fuel cells with core applications in transport.

Our key facilities include the £50m Centre for Advanced Low Carbon Propulsion Systems (C-ALPS) which is a partnership between Coventry University and FEV UK and our Centre of Excellence in Cell Prototyping located in the Alison Gingell building.

Our Centres goal is to build academic depth and state of the art facilities, in chosen research areas, so that we can collaborate synergistically with other research groups and industrial partners.
