Centre for Low Emission Vehicle research (CLEVeR)

The latest developments and research projects from the University's CLEVeR facility

About us

The Centre for Low Emission Vehicle Research (CLEVeR) is a ground-breaking new facility at the University of Bath that will allow academic researchers and the automotive industry to carry out state-of-the-art emission measurements for vehicles, ensuring that the emissions from cars out on the open road are not different to those established by traditional laboratory analysis.

This blog provides readers with a monthly 'behind the scenes' update about the progress of the development of the Facility before its launch in September. In addition, readers will hear about the latest projects being undertaken in this exciting new facility as well as the different outcomes from the research being conducted in the Facility.

This blog is written primarily by Professor Gary Hawley, lead investigator for CLEVeR and Dean of the University of Bath’s Faculty of Engineering, and Deputy Director of the Powertrain and Vehicle Research Centre, Professor of Automotive Propulsion Chris Brace. Colleagues from CLEVeR and PVRC may also contribute entries from time to time.
