Advanced Propulsion Lab

The Advanced Propulsion Lab (APL) at UCL East will be a global centre of excellence dedicated to the decarbonisation of the transport sector, specialising in battery and fuel cell electric vehicles.

The APL is a product of the world-leading research and development that UCL's current Electrochemical Innovation Lab (EIL) have been undertaking for over a decade. With over 70 researchers in the fields of electrochemical energy storage and power conversion, the EIL has laid the foundations for the APL to be created at UCL's exciting new campus at UCL East

At the new UCL East campus in Stratford, the APL takes the existing work by the EIL and scales this work up to higher technology readiness levels, working closely with industry to tackle global challenges such as the future of mobility.  The aim of the APL is to expand upon the existing research currently taking place at Bloomsbury campus, both from the work carried out by the EIL team and the UCL Department of Mechanical Engineering.
