Technology Showcase: Industrial Energy Transformation Fund Phase 1
The Phase 2 competition for England, Wales and Northern Ireland opens on the 31st January 2022 and runs until 29th April 2022 and is worth up to £60 million in funding.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), in collaboration with KTN, will be hosting a live event in Birmingham on the 10th March to showcase some of the funded projects from Phase 1 of the Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF).
Webinar recording is now available
The IETF supports businesses with high energy use to transition to a low carbon future, and to cut their energy bills and carbon emissions through increased energy efficiency and decarbonisation relating to the industrial process itself. It is a crucial part of the Government’s strategy for tackling climate change and reaching Net Zero by 2050.
The event will include an opportunity to hear from manufacturing sites who are planning to deploy technologies to reduce their energy demand such as heat recovery, VAR, process controls and to reduce their carbon emissions such as carbon capture and fuel switching to hydrogen.
As well as helping you to understand how technology can assist your site to reach net zero carbon it will be a great opportunity to network with face to face and build partnerships for future IETF competition windows.
The event will also give an overview of R&D funding available through BEIS’s Net Zero Innovation Portfolio such as the Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator and Industrial Fuel Switching Fund.
The event will benefit a number of organisations and professionals including:
- Manufacturing companies
- Mining and quarrying companies
- Recovery and recycling of materials companies
- Data centres
- Energy efficiency and decarbonisation technology providers
