Organisations can apply for a share of up to £30million for grants for energy efficiency projects that reduce fuel bills and carbon emissions.
This Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) competition is offering up to £30million, split across two strands, to fund feasibility, engineering studies and deployment. In this strand, projects must deploy technologies to improve the energy efficiency of industrial processes.
In this strand, industrial businesses of any size can apply, either on their own or in collaboration with other organisations. The lead applicant must operate at an eligible site in England, Wales or Northern Ireland at which the project is carried out.
The other competition strand, IETF industrial energy efficiency and decarbonisation studies, will support feasibility and engineering studies to develop energy efficiency and deep decarbonisation projects that enable possible subsequent deployment.
The IETF is a Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) fund. Innovate UK is delivering this competition on behalf of BEIS, which is a joint sponsor. Innovate UK will be sharing all data on your application and project with BEIS. BEIS may contact you to gather IETF evaluation information irrespective of whether your application is successful.
BEIS and Innovate UK will keep under review the impact of the current global disruption on applications to the competition.
