The funding is available via the Managing Energy on Marine Vessels competition, which is part-funded by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory and run by Innovate UK.

David Elson, Lead Technologist at Innovate UK commented:

Energy efficiency is one of the biggest challenges facing industry today, on land or sea. I hope this competition encourages businesses already working in this area to see the potential for growth in the marine sector and develop new and exciting innovations in the process.
