Details

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 £13 million has been made 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.

IEEA delivery partner event 18 January 2021

As part of the £1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP), BEIS is seeking a delivery partner to run future rounds of the IEEA.

We held an event for suppliers interested in the delivery partner role on 18 January 2021, and have published the presentation and Q&A from the event here.

Phase 1

More than 100 technology ideas were screened, and we 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 attachment to this page.

Phase 2

The second phase launched on 1 February 2019 and ran until 30 April 2019.

Technology developers and industrial companies applied to the IEEA with a combined submission. Over 60 projects were assessed and 9 successful Phase 2 projects were selected based on energy saving potential and scalability. While projects are being demonstrated in specific sectors, many have wider industry applications.
