Open to all UK manufacturing sectors, the IEEA is a technology neutral competition, targeting innovations that can have the largest cross-sectoral impact on energy and carbon reduction.
Successful applicants should expect to receive between 40-60% of total project cost, with IEEA contributions typically between [pounds sterling]150,000 and [pounds sterling]750,000 per project--the remainder to be provided by the applicant.
The IEEA is funded by the Energy Innovation Programme, led by BEIS, and will be delivered by the Carbon Trust with support from engineering firm, Jacobs, and infrastructure specialist, AMEC Foster Wheeler.
The IEEA will run an open application process until January 2018 to engage with technology developers looking for opportunities to demonstrate near-commercial solutions and to access incubation support.
