About Riversimple



Riversimple is a car company dedicated "to pursuing, systematically, the elimination of the environmental impact of personal transport". Based in mid Wales, we are pioneering the next generation of electric cars. The Rasa is an electric car powered by hydrogen. The Rasa has a composite structure, a fuel cell of only 12kW, four in-wheel motors and a bank of supercapacitors, no batteries.

Air quality is acknowledged to be a massive and urgent challenge, and we believe the Rasa is best in class. It emits nothing but pure water vapour and is designed to minimise the particulates from tyres and brakes with its low weight, skinny tyres and highly regenerative braking.



Riversimple is probably the only car manufacturer in the world that hopes never to sell a car. We aim to offer customers vehicles as part of a complete and cost-transparent subscription service, with a single monthly fee that covers the car, the maintenance, insurance and all fuel. Why? Because the fastest way to meet today's environmental imperatives is to pioneer a new business model that makes efficiency profitable without asking the customer to pay a premium for it

About Circular Revolution



Circular Revolution is an ambitious research and innovation project led by Riversimple in collaboration with Swansea University and the University of Exeter. Supported by European Regional Development Funds (ERDF) through the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) the project will deliver activities focused on circular thinking.



The Circular Revolution will be run from a dedicated centre in Riversimple's HQ in Llandrindod Wells and will deliver two programmes of activity. The first is an outreach programme for businesses in West Wales and the Valleys who are keen to engage with more sustainable products, services and business models. Swansea University and the University of Exeter will be supporting them in discovering the latest practices and exploring how to embed circular principles into their business. The second programme of activity is pioneering research and innovation aimed at tackling the specific challenges businesses face in adopting a sale of service circular model. Six pilot projects will focus on developing procurement, computation systems, and legal frameworks.



Circular Revolution will support Wales to develop sustainability in West Wales and the Valleys and beyond, helping build the Green economy.
