The BEIS Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator is open for applications

9 December 2021

The BEIS Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator is currently open for applications for demonstration projects using novel process technologies with the potential to reduce energy consumption, maximise resource efficiency and cut carbon emissions. 

The IEEA supports partnerships between developers of efficient technologies and industrial companies willing to trial innovations on-site. To date the IEEA has supported 16 demonstrator projects with grants to the tune of £8m, over half of which are now ready to commercialise for full-scale roll-out. 

A further £8 million is now available in two phases to support projects from all UK industry sectors that can demonstrate either a novel technology (targeting Technology Readiness Level 5-8), or the use of an established technology in a novel way.

The application window for Phase 3 is open until 31 January 2022, with a Phase 4 window open from late Spring 2022.

If you have a novel technology designed to improve energy or resource efficiency of industrial processes, or are an industrial site willing to host a demonstration project we’d love to here from you. Please visit the IEEA website ( for all of the eligibility details and information on how to apply, or contact [email protected] for further information.
