Plans have been unveiled for the development of Greenpower Park, a new UK Center of Electrification and Clean Energy. The campus will be anchored by the West Midlands Gigafactory and will focus on fostering a clean electrified technology ecosystem. Greenpower Park will be located in Coventry and is the only site in the UK with approved plans for a large-scale battery production facility. The campus will also include space for battery research, industrialization, manufacturing, testing, recycling, and electrified logistics. The Greenpower Park campus is expected to drive advancements in zero-emission electric vehicles, public transport, aviation, and energy systems.

The Greenpower Park campus is targeting £2.5bn in inward investment and the creation of 6,000 highly skilled jobs. The project is being developed through a unique collaboration between academia, industry, government, and international partners. The campus has already secured endorsement from nine local universities and will be located within the West Midlands Investment Zone.

The West Midlands Gigafactory will be the anchor tenant of the Greenpower Park campus. The Gigafactory will have the capacity to produce up to 60GWh of batteries, enough to power 600,000 electric vehicles. The Gigafactory will also benefit from significant incentives associated with the Greenpower Park Investment Zone status. The Greenpower Park campus is the only site in the UK with approved plans for a large-scale battery production facility.

The Greenpower Park campus will also be located in close proximity to a significant local workforce with relevant skills. The project will be based in Coventry, which is part of the West Midlands manufacturing powerbase. The region is home to over 210,000 students enrolled in degrees and vocational courses relevant to the electrification sector.

“Plans to place Britain at the epicenter of the green industrial revolution have taken a significant leap forward with the launch of Greenpower Park,” says Cllr Jim O'Boyle, Cabinet Member for Jobs, Regeneration and Climate Change at Coventry City Council. “This ambitious initiative is not merely about setting the groundwork for the next generation of electric technologies and sustainable manufacturing practices. It is a clarion call to the world that the UK is open for business, ready to lead the charge in the green industrial revolution. With its strategic location, unprecedented financial support, academic partnerships, a ready-made skilled workforce, and oven-ready plans to build Britain's biggest gigafactory, Greenpower Park is poised to become the cornerstone of the UK's electrified future, driving forward our commitment to innovation, sustainability, and economic growth.”

Greenpower Park is a joint venture between Coventry City Council and Coventry Airport Ltd. The project has also received support from the West Midlands Combined Authority, Warwick District Council, Warwickshire County Council, Rugby Council, Coventry University, and the Manufacturing Technology Centre.
