THE PREMIER LOCATION FOR INVESTMENT IN ELECTRIFICATION TECHNOLOGIES
Home to Europe’s first electric gigafactory and recent investments from Nissan, AESC and Turntide Technologies totalling over £2 billion, the North East is rapidly emerging as the UK leader in the electric vehicle (EV) and battery sectors.
Founded on a pedigree of engineering and high value manufacturing, the region is home to a cluster of companies that include global OEMs to highly innovative SMEs. We have a unique asset base for producing, innovating and demonstrating solutions across the whole spectrum of industries relating to electrification.
Our experience of electrification, combined with the materials and supply chains that automotive businesses need, puts the North East way ahead of other UK regions. The sector is set to create up to 78,000 new jobs in the UK by 2040, and North East is the prime location for investment in electrification technologies.
