A share of up to £18 million available to invest in technologies to recover heat from industrial processes and increase the deployment of such technologies in England and Wales.
Award: Share of £18 million
Opens: 15th Oct 2018
Closes: 31st Jul 2020
Industrial heat recovery is a process by which heat generated in or for an industrial process, that otherwise would be wasted, is recovered and utilised. This waste heat can be used within the same industrial facility for heat or cooling, by another end-user (e.g. an existing heat network), or by converting the waste heat to power.
Industrial heat recovery has the potential to realise significant energy bill and carbon savings for industry through a reduction in primary fuel use.
BEIS has developed the Industrial Heat Recovery Support (IHRS) Programme to further understand the identified challenges and barriers to adoption, and to increase industrial confidence in deploying heat recovery technologies by working with industry to address these barriers.
The Programme will support the recovery of heat which meets the following criteria:
To be eligible for funding, projects must:
Applications are open to companies in all industrial manufacturing sectors as set out in the Office of National Statistics (ONS) Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes 10-33. Applications are also welcome from Data Centres, given their emerging significance and high impact potential.
For Phase 1 Feasibility Study and Preliminary Engineering and Phase 2 Detailed Design projects:
For Phase 2 Construction, Commissioning, Operation Start-up and Monitoring and Evaluation projects:
For Phase 2 projects, an additional 5-15% may be added depending on project location.
All activities implemented under the programme must be completed before March 2022.
