Competition for industrial energy efficiency and decarbonisation studies

The Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) competition is offering up to £30 million, split across two strands, to fund feasibility, engineering studies and deployment. In the first strand, projects must undertake a feasibility or an engineering study (experimental development) to develop either an energy efficiency or a deep decarbonisation project that enables possible subsequent deployment. The other competition strand, IETF deployment of energy efficiency technologies in industry, will fund projects that deploy energy efficiency technology. The deadline for both strands is 11am on 28 October 2020.

Government launches new £40 million Clean Growth Fund to supercharge green start-ups

The Clean Growth Fund is a venture capital vehicle to accelerate early-stage green businesses. The Fund will contribute towards the UK’s plans to reach Net Zero by 2050 and will be accessible to UK-based companies driving green technology across the power, transport, waste, and building energy efficiency sectors. Potential examples of projects the fund could support include:

  • energy storage and smart grid systems to bolster resilience in the power system.
  • renewable heating and ventilation technologies across homes and commercial buildings.
  • bio-fuels and bio-energy systems.

Supergen Bioenergy Hub flexible funding call

The Supergen Bioenergy Hub flexible funding call, offering rapid response funding to the UK bioenergy research community, is now open. Rapid response funding is intended to support the UK’s bioenergy research community in responding to industrial and policy challenges that arise during the lifetime of the Hub and in developing active international research collaborations.

A total of £240,000 is available over the four-year lifetime of the Supergen Bioenergy Hub to support at least 12 projects that will rapidly enhance existing knowledge to facilitate industrial, policy or international impact. Applications can be submitted for projects up to £25,000 in value, calculated under the full UK Research and Innovation economic costing model. Proposals may be submitted at any time up until 1 May 2022.
