The opportunity

In a first for both companies, the strategic collaboration between Siemens UK plc and the Catapult aims to help build the UK’s ambition to lead globally in power electronics, machines and drives. The Siemens Power Electronics Innovation Hub represents the combined dedication of both organisations to nurture innovation and champion sustainable tech progress.

The rapidly advancing landscape of power electronics offers a wealth of opportunities to deliver Net Zero through electrification.

Located in Newport, there is a strategic hub for connecting with academic institutions, Catapults, RTOs, industry insiders, emerging start-ups and funding organisations.

The partnership with Siemens highlights CSA Catapult’s expertise and highlights the untapped potential of the UK’s electronics sector.

Our role

The Catapult’s technology centre of excellence is a key intervention for UK industry and provides involvement in the research initiatives and is pivotal in the pursuit of groundbreaking innovations in smart power electronics.
