IETF Phase 2: Autumn 2022 provides approximately £70 million of grant funding for the following project types:
studies - feasibility and engineering studies to enable companies to investigate identified energy efficiency and decarbonisation projects prior to making an investment decision
energy efficiency - deployment of technologies to reduce industrial energy consumption
deep decarbonisation - deployment of technologies to achieve industrial emissions savings
The Phase 2: Autumn 2022 competition was open to businesses of any size registered and operating in England, Wales or Northern Ireland. Some IETF funding rules may differ for businesses based in Northern Ireland.
If your site is based in Scotland, you can apply for the Scottish Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (SIETF). Contact IETF@gov.scot for more information.
Non-road mobile machinery
In this application window, the IETF also supported projects that improve the energy efficiency and/or reduce emissions of non-road mobile machinery (NRMM). The machinery must be necessary to, and a part of, the industrial process located within the boundary of the eligible site. Find out more in the applicant guidance.
Your business must operate an existing site which falls into one of the following SIC codes:
|Eligible industrial processes
|Mining and quarrying
|05101 through to 05200
07100 through to 08990
|10000 through to 33200
|Recovery and recycling of materials
Please check the SIC code you were allocated at the time of registering at Companies House. If the parent company SIC Code does not reflect the activity carried out at your site, for example where a data centre is owned by a telecoms company, you may still be eligible.
The guidance document provides more detail on the eligibility criteria. You can also contact us about eligibility at firstname.lastname@example.org: type ‘Eligibility screening assessment request’ as the subject line of the email.
