The Industrial Heat Recovery Support (IHRS) Programme was launched on 5 July 2018 and will open for applications in Autumn 2018. The government response to the consultation on the Industrial Heat Recovery Support Programme was also published on 5 July 2018.
The aim of the IHRS is:
- to increase industry confidence to invest in technologies to recover heat from industrial processes
- to increase the deployment of such technologies in England and Wales
The government will provide financial support to increase the deployment of industrial heat recovery technologies. This will help to overcome key barriers, and increase industry confidence to identify and invest in opportunities for recovering heat from industrial processes. In turn, this will lead to more efficient and productive use of industrial energy, lower fuel bills or a new revenue stream for industry, and a reduction in carbon emissions.
The draft guidance documents for each stage of the application process provide further information on the Programme. We have made them available now to give industry time to consider options, in advance of opening for applications.
We welcome any feedback on the guidance and / or application forms.
Please send feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org by 20 August 2018.
As the documents are draft, they may be subject to change before being finalised.
Please do not make applications on the basis of the draft guidance and application forms: we will publish final versions of the guidance and forms here prior to the Programme opening for applications.
