Sustainable inventions win scale-up funding boost
25 November 2022 | PRESS RELEASE
Eight cutting-edge technologies, with the potential to save energy, maximise resource efficiency and cut carbon emissions, have won funding for UK industry trials.
These winners are the third phase of the BEIS Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA) programme, which helps innovators scale up technology for industrial use.
Energy and climate minister Graham Stuart said:
"Industrial decarbonisation is essential to delivering green growth and jobs. I am delighted today to award more than £3.6 million of government funding across eight pioneering projects who are developing the technologies of the future.
“As our Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA) programme shows, the UK is home to world-class innovators who are finding vital solutions to cutting industrial emissions.”
Meeting the Net Zero challenge: bringing innovation to industry
Discover how innovation can help industry meet the Net Zero challenge, through key note speakers, expert panel discussions and case studies
The UK's Net Zero target means a step-change in the ambition to decarbonise UK’s industry. In 2018, industry represented 16% of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, being the third largest emitter after energy production and transport. Accelerating the deployment of innovative technologies will help cut carbon emissions, while maintaining a competitive and thriving sector. We have a clear destination, now let’s plot the journey.
In this event, you will:
- Understand the scope of the Net Zero challenge and the urgency for industry to meet it, with key note speakers such as Mark Taylor, Deputy Director Energy Innovation at BEIS and Julia King, Baroness Brown of Cambridge and chair of the Carbon Trust.
- Hear from a panel of industry leaders on how adopting innovative technologies can bring significant carbon and cost savings to businesses.
- Find out how corporations are overcoming the challenges faced when setting their own decarbonisation targets.
- Learn about the real energy and cost savings achieved by the innovative demonstration projects supported through the first and second phase of the BEIS Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA).
The BEIS IEEA is delivered by the Carbon Trust with support from Jacobs and KTN.
