Up to £1m co-funding available for industrial energy efficiency projects

The government has launched a new £9.2m accelerator fund for innovative energy efficiency projects helping UK industry.

The Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA) is funded by the Energy Innovation Programme, led by BEIS, and will be delivered over the next four years by the Carbon Trust with support from engineering firm Jacobs and infrastructure specialist AMEC Foster Wheeler..

The accelerator aims 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. Co-funding of between £150,000 and £1m to technology developers and industrial companies to support a number of demonstration projects across the UK.

The IEEA will run an open application process until January 2018 to find between 15 and 30 pilot projects. Further information on the IEEA and details of the open call and workshop dates are available at www.carbontrust.com/IEEA.

Al-Karim Govindji, senior manager for innovation at the Carbon Trust said: “Through the IEEA we will work collaboratively with trade associations, industry and technology providers to identify and demonstrate the best innovative opportunities for energy reduction.”
