Energy efficiency accelerator
The Carbon Trust has launched an Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA), open to projects from all UK industry sectors that can demonstrate either a novel technology, or the use of an established technology in a novel way. The result of the project should be a reduction in (or avoidance of) energy use and/carbon emissions.
Funding Body Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
Funding Amount Up to £750K grant
Deadline 1st September 2018
Being involved in the BEIS IEEA will allow promising innovators to demonstrate their technology in an operational environment and increase confidence from potential users. The BEIS IEEA also provides forward-looking industrial companies with an opportunity to implement pioneering technologies with decreased risk and capital cost.
A total of £9.2m in funding will be available through the programme, primarily for funding demonstration projects1. Successful applicants should expect to receive between 40-60% of required funding for their project, with IEEA contributions typically between £150-750k per project – the remainder to be provided by the applicant. There is scope for a small number of exceptional projects to receive more than £750k.
Industrial companies with UK sites, UK universities, or joint consortia may apply for a grant, where technology developers and industrial companies are encouraged to apply to the competition with a combined submission (can be more than 2 parties). It is possible for a company to apply individually; however, it is anticipated that most of the projects will be delivered through a partnership.
