Launch of Phase 1 of Industrial Energy Transformation Fund to support businesses on the path to Net Zero

The UK Government has launched Phase 1 of the Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF).  The funding programme will support businesses with high energy use transition to a low carbon future and reduce their emissions through increased energy efficiency and decarbonisation. 

The Phase 1 funding for England, Wales and Northern Ireland will open in July and is worth up to £30 million.

Funding is available in the form of a grant scheme for:

  • the deployment of mature energy efficiency technologies that improve industrial process energy efficiency and reduce energy demand
  • feasibility and engineering studies for projects deploying mature energy efficiency or deep decarbonisation technologies
