Details

The Clean Growth Strategy highlights the need for industry to begin to switch from fossil fuel use to low carbon fuels such as biomass, hydrogen and clean electricity. Beyond 2030, the switch to low carbon fuels for industry will need to substantially increase in scale.

Phase 3

The 3 phase Industrial Fuel Switching competition allocates up to £20 million to stimulate early investment in fuel switching processes and technologies, so that a range of technologies are available by 2030 and beyond.

Phase 3 will result in the implementation and demonstration of an industrial fuel switching solution. This phase will consider applications to pilot key components or further develop the design of the new industrial fuel switching solutions. A pilot demonstration is not limited to a physical demonstration and may only be for part(s) of the process. This could include detailed process modelling or engineering design. Phase 3 invitation to tender (ITT) will be published in August 2019.

Phase 3 expressions of interest

If you are interested in applying to Phase 3 of the programme, please email industry.innovation@beis.gov.uk?subject=Phase-3-Industrial-Fuel-Switching-Competition-Registration with this information:

  • name of the lead project organisation (project co-ordinator)
  • project title
  • confirmation of intention to submit an application

Deadline: midnight 2 September 2019

We have published a draft application form here for information purposes – please let us know if there are any technical issues with completing it.

Phase 2

Phase 2 of the competition closed to applications in February 2019.

It will fund up to £300,000 for feasibility studies looking into developing technologies (technology readiness level 4-7) to enable the use of a low carbon fuel for a particular industrial process or across an entire site.

Phase 1

Element Energy successfully bid for Phase 1 which aims to understand the potential for industry to operate on low carbon fuels and the innovation required to enable this to happen. The Phase 1 study final report is complete.
