Closes:
28/10/2020
Sectors:
All
Energy
Project Size:
TBC

Summary

Organisations can apply for funding to deploy technologies to improve the energy efficiency of industrial processes.


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.


Eligibility

Your project must:

  • Start by 1 April 2022
  • End by 31 March 2024
  • Have a minimum total grant funding of £250,000


At the end of your project you must have installed and begun to operate (or be ready to operate) the energy efficiency technology.


Your project must be carried out for a single manufacturing site or data centre in England, Wales or Northern Ireland.


This competition is aimed at specific types of business. These are determined by SIC codes. You will need to check your business SIC code to make sure you are eligible. For this competition, your business must operate at one of these sites:

  • Manufacturing 10 - 33 or
  • Data centres 63110


To lead a project or work alone your organisation:

  • Must be a business of any size registered in England, Wales, or Northern Ireland
  • Must operate at the study manufacturing site or data centre in England, Wales, or Norther Ireland 
  • Can collaborate with organisations registered in England, Wales, or Northern Ireland

Scope

This strand of the competition will provide grants to improve the energy efficiency of industrial processes.


Your project must focus on deployment of technology that has been proven to work through successful operations and/or is qualified through test and demonstration. The technology must improve the energy efficiency of an industrial process or processes. Your project must only be possible because of this funding.


Example technologies include:

  • Improved process control
  • More efficient heat exchange
  • More efficient drying
  • Energy recovery from waste heat
  • Energy recovery from waste pressure
  • Resource process optimisation


You will be required to submit data throughout the project and for 5 years after the end of the project. This will be used to evaluate whether your project has achieved the benefits described in your proposal and has contributed to the overall objectives of the fund.


Innovate UK will not fund:

  • Technologies that are not proven to work through successful operations and/or are not qualified through test and demonstration
  • Repair and maintenance projects that would be undertaken in the normal course of business
  • Plant closure projects
  • Energy efficiency measures in transport, lighting, or building heating and cooling
  • Electricity generation, such as solar, wind, combined heat and power
