Participate in Phase 3
The BEIS IEEA is a funding programme designed to support partnerships between developers of energy/resource efficient technologies and industrial companies willing to demonstrate the technologies on-site.
The programme is open to projects from all UK industry sectors that can demonstrate either a novel technology (targeting Technology Readiness Level 5-8), or the use of an established technology in a novel way.
Being part of the IEEA will allow promising innovators to:
Demonstrate their technology in an operational environment
Increase confidence from potential users
Access incubation and marketing support
And it will provide forward-looking industrial companies with an opportunity to:
Implement pioneering technologies with decreased risk and cost
A total of £8 million in funding will be available through the programme to fund demonstration projects. Successful applicants can typically expect to receive between 40-60% funding for their project, with IEEA contributions typically between £150k with £1m per project and the remainder to be funded by the applicant(s).
Who can apply to the IEEA?
Projects should comprise an industrial partner that will demonstrate the technology at their site, and (usually) a technology developer that has developed the new technology. Other project partners can be included in a consortium such as research organisations, universities, specialist technology suppliers and consultants.
