Growing UK Manufacturing in Power Electronics, Machines and Drives

Backed by UK Government funding, Driving the Electric Revolution Industrialisation Centres (DER-IC) reduce the cost and risk of manufacturing Power Electronics, Machines and Drives (PEMD) in the UK by providing open access to expertise and state-of-the-art manufacturing, test and validation equipment.

DER-IC supports the PEMD supply chain with open-access capital equipment, specialist capability, prototyping, testing, design for manufacture, manufacturing process development and scale-up, access to supply chain partners and training.

The DER-IC network engages in collaborative research and development projects (CR&D) funded through UKRI, Innovate UK, regional initiatives and other funding schemes. DER-IC can deliver projects and access to equipment and capability through commercial contracts and provide SME advice and regional support programmes. DER-IC hosts an online portal enabling partners to highlight PEMD capability, and link with the national DER-IC network and industry to promote business to business collaboration

DER-IC can facilitate targeted introductions to expedite access to the most relevant researchers, engineers and capability across the partner network. Company IP can be protected through all engagement routes.

By using DER-IC equipment and capability, supply chain partners can develop and verify product and manufacturing process performance ahead of committing to capital investment, reduce cost and risk of new product introduction (NPI) and achieve a faster time to market.

DER-IC offers the following capabilities

  • Product and Manufacturing Process Equipment Design
  • Manufacturing Process Development and Optimisation
  • Prototype Manufacture and Scale-up Support
  • In-Process and End-of-Line Test and Validation
  • Material and Component Characterisation
  • Electrification Skills Learning and Development
