The Carbon Trust re-appointed to lead new phase of Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA) to speed up adoption of low carbon technologies in industry
The Carbon Trust has been re-appointed to design and deliver the next phase of the BEIS £10 million Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA) programme which is part of the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP).
The IEEA programme will support the demonstration of innovative technologies with the potential to cut carbon emissions through reduced energy consumption and/or improved resource efficiency.
Around £8 million of grant funding will be available for demonstration projects in UK industry.
“As some of the biggest contributors to UK emissions, it is imperative that we support industries like ceramics, paper and steel to develop innovative technologies that will not only help us meet our climate commitments, but help them to cut costs and give them a competitive advantage.
Through our Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator programme and with the extensive experience of the Carbon Trust, industry will have the support they need to drive forward innovative projects that will help reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency, as we build back greener.”Anne-Marie Trevelyan, Energy & Climate Change Minister
