UK Government initiative to bolster global competitiveness

23 August 2017

The Carbon Trust will be running the new £9.2 million Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA), launched in January by the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to help bolster the global competitiveness of British industry.

Over the next four years, the IEEA will aim to lower costs and increase the number of available energy efficient technologies for a range of industrial sectors, through demonstration of near to market innovations. The Accelerator also aims to address technical and commercial challenges by providing tailored incubation support and co-funding to technology developers and start-ups to drive UK expertise, exports and jobs.

The IEEA will run an open application process until January 2018 to engage with technology developers looking for opportunities to demonstrate near-commercial solutions and to access incubation support. Industrial players across a number of sectors will also be encouraged to apply in collaboration with a technology developer to receive support to pilot the best innovations that will have the greatest impact on their operations. A ‘fast track’ process is also available for those industrial companies already engaged with a technology developer and looking for funding and advice to help run a demonstration.

It is anticipated that between 15 and 30 pilot projects will be selected to receive funding and implementation advice. At the end of the two-year pilot phase results from each of the projects will be incorporated into sector guides and presented through a series of regional events.

 Further information on the IEEA and details of the open call and workshop dates are available at www.carbontrust.com/IEEA
