Summary

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has launched phase two of the three-phase Industrial Fuel Switching competition.

The government’s Clean Growth Strategy highlights the need for industry to begin to switch from fossil fuels to low-carbon fuels such as biomass, hydrogen and clean electricity.  Beyond 2030, the switch to low-carbon fuels for industry will need to substantially increase in scale.  This three-phase competition allocates up to £20 million to stimulate early investment in fuel switching processes and technologies so that a range of technologies are available by 2030 and beyond.

Phase 2 of the Industrial Fuel Switching competition is now open to applications and will fund up to £300k for feasibility studies looking into developing technologies (TRL 4-7) to enable the use of a low-carbon fuel for a particular industrial process or across an entire site.

Funding for Phase 2 is split equally into two lots.  Each lot has £1.5m allocated to it and projects may be up to £300k.  Lot 1 is for projects that run a feasibility study on an innovative fuel switching technology.  Lot 2 is for projects that run a feasibility study on an innovative approach fuel switching across an industrial site, or multiple sites.

Applicants must register their interest in Phase 2 of the competition by email to Industry.Innovation@beis.gov.uk by 5pm, Monday 7 January 2019.  All applications must be completed by 5pm, Monday 21 January 2019.
