The IEEA programme aims to increase the number of innovative energy efficiency technologies available to British industry to help reduce energy consumption and cut carbon emissions. This intervention is designed to strengthen the global competitiveness of UK industry in sectors including manufacturing, waste processing and data centres. Up to £9.2 million will be available for the programme.
The Accelerator seeks industry-specific solutions which are close to commercialisation by leveraging private sector investment and strengthening UK supply chains to reduce energy costs for UK industry.
The programme is managed by the BEIS delivery partner, the Carbon Trust, and supported by engineering consultancy Jacobs.
More than 100 technology ideas were screened, and we have committed £2.7 million to 7 successful projects. Projects were selected on their energy saving potential and scalability, with particular focus on technologies that can be deployed across multiple industrial sectors.
Read details of the successful Phase 1 projects in the above attachment.
The second phase launches on 1 February 2019 and will run until 30 April 2019.
Technology developers and industrial companies are encouraged to apply to the IEEA with a combined submission.
Further detail and information on the application process is available from the Carbon Trust.
