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.
Your project must:
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 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:
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.
