This is phase 2 of the 3 phase Industrial Fuel Switching competition to stimulate early investment in fuel switching processes and technologies.
Award: Share of up to £3 million
Opens: 30th Nov 2018
Closes: 4th Feb 2019
The aim of the Industrial Fuel Switching Competition will be to identify and demonstrate solutions which will enable fuel switching in industry from fossil fuels to less carbon intensive fuels.
The specific objectives for the Competition are to:
The Competition will be split into two lots for Phase 2.
Lot 1: Development of a specific fuel switching solution or associated technology.
This Lot is aimed at innovations in specific technologies which enable industrial processes to safely switch to low carbon fuels; the technologies in scope are not limited to the technologies used in converting the energy but include monitoring/ measurement and air quality abatement technologies (for those specifically in relation to fuel switching to biomass or hydrogen).
Lot 2: This Lot is aimed at projects which establish the viability of applying innovative approaches to switching an industrial site to low carbon fuels (either a single site, or a cluster of sites). Applicants to this lot will need to demonstrate that their approach either;
Applicants should explain their approach to fuel switching solutions across their chosen site or cluster of sites.
Studies must be complete by July 2019.
The majority, over 50%, of the eligible project costs must be incurred in the UK.
Funding will not be provided for projects which use:
BEIS is unable to fund retrospective work on projects.
Please note, you must register to apply for this competition with BEIS by 5pm on 21st January 2019.
