Summary

Organisations can apply for grants funding to undertake feasibility and engineering studies into energy efficiency and decarbonisation.


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.


Eligibility

Your project must:

  • Have total eligible project costs of at least £60,000 and last up to 12 months if it is a feasibility study
  • Have total eligible project costs of at least £100,000 and last up to 24 months if it is experimental development
  • Start by 1 October 2021
  • End by 30 September 2023


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 aims to:

  • Help industrial companies build a pipeline of future deployment projects by supporting feasibility and engineering studies (experimental development)
  • Reduce the costs and risks of either industrial energy efficiency or decarbonisation technologies


Feasibility studies must

  • Investigate technologies that improve the energy efficiency or reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of an industrial process
  • Establish whether or not the potential technology is technically and commercially viable


Experimental development (engineering study) is a detailed project plan that identifies specific technical requirements. The final report will be an overall document, summarising many separate studies carried out by different specialists. It is a structured, multi-disciplinary engineering design with the purpose of identifying key project design features and providing a project cost estimate.


Both feasibility studies and engineering studies must focus on one of the following.

  • Energy efficiency - projects must support technologies that improve the energy efficiency of an industrial process or processes. These must focus on deployment of technology that has been proven to work through successful operations and/or is qualified through test and demonstration.
  • Deep decarbonisation - projects must result in a significant reduction in the greenhouse gas emissions of an industrial process and may not necessarily have an energy efficiency benefit.
