Published 10 January 2022
IETF Phase 2: Spring 2022 is open to applications and provides up to £60 million of grant funding for the following project types:
- studies – feasibility and engineering studies to enable companies to investigate identified energy efficiency and decarbonisation projects prior to making an investment decision
- energy efficiency – deployment of technologies to reduce industrial energy consumption
- deep decarbonisation – deployment of technologies to achieve industrial emissions savings
The Phase 2: Spring 2022 competition is open to businesses of any size registered in England, Wales or Northern Ireland.
If your site is based in Scotland, you can apply for the Scottish Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (SIETF): contact IETF@gov.scot for more information.
Your business must operate an existing site which falls into one of the following SIC codes:
|Eligible industrial processes||SIC codes|
|Manufacturing||10000 through to 33200|
Please check the SIC code you were allocated at the time of registering at Companies House. If the parent company SIC Code does not reflect the activity carried out at your site, for example where a data centre is owned by a telecoms company, you may still be eligible.
