Energy Entrepreneurs Fund: Phase 4
The Energy Entrepreneurs Fund seeks the best ideas, irrespective of source, across these energy technology areas from the public and private sector. The scheme particularly aims to assist small and medium-sized enterprises, including start-ups, and those companies that are selected will receive additional funding for incubation support.
This is a competitive funding scheme to support the development and demonstration of state of the art technologies, products and processes in the areas of energy efficiency, power generation, heat and electricity storage and carbon capture and storage (CCS).
An additional £5m is now available for projects up to March 31st 2016. Up to £2.5m of this will be prioritised for projects focused on technologies associated with CCS. Please follow the link below for full details in the guidance notes on how to apply and deadlines for registration and submission of applications.
Expressions of interest are required by 5pm on 19th December 2014 and the deadline for applications is noon on 26th January 2015.
During the application process, applicants will be expected to demonstrate a robust evidence-based case for funding, that will include but not be limited to:
-the potential impact of the innovation on 2020 and/or 2050 low carbon targets or security of supply
-the technical viability of their innovation and coherent development plan that will commercially progress the innovation
-value for money, including any cost reduction potential
-the size and nature of the business opportunity
