Funding competition IETF industrial energy efficiency and decarbonisation studies

Organisations can apply for a share of up to £30 million for grants to carry out feasibility and engineering studies into energy efficiency and decarbonisation.

This Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) competition is offering up to £30 million, split across 2 strands, to fund feasibility, engineering studies and deployment.

In this 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.

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 study is carried out.

The other competition strand, IETF deployment of energy efficiency technologies in industry, will fund projects that deploy energy efficiency technology.

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. We will be sharing all data about your application and project with BEIS. BEIS may contact you to gather IETF evaluation information irrespective of whether your application is successful.

The competition closes at 11am UK time on the deadline stated.

BEIS and Innovate UK will keep under review the impact of the current global disruption on applications to the competition. View more
