The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) recently announced the extension of the Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) Phase 2: Autumn 2022 competition and is hosting some additional stakeholder clinics during the competition window to help and support businesses interested in applying for IETF funding. Our Virtual Technology Marketplace is also live and businesses can register now.
Businesses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland can now bid for a share of up to £70 million in grant funding through the competition window, which runs until Friday 17 February 2023. The competition will provide grant funding towards the costs of feasibility and engineering studies, energy efficiency deployment projects and deep decarbonisation deployment projects. This is the last currently planned application window and applicants are encouraged to apply if they have a suitable project.
To find out more about the £70 million IETF Phase 2: Autumn 2022 competition, view the applicant guidance and make an application for funding, please visit our competition page.
The stakeholder clinics help businesses planning on bidding for Phase 2 funding by enabling them to speak directly to BEIS and ask questions around potential bids, scope of the competitions, eligibility criteria, how to apply for funding, the IETF support and information services available, etc.
They provide an excellent opportunity to engage with organisations directly and we welcome the chance to be able to talk to you and help with your queries. The clinics are run on a fortnightly basis with the final ones taking place on 17 January 2023 and 31 January 2023.

IETF Virtual Technology Marketplace
To support businesses interested in applying for IETF funding, we are running the Virtual Technology Marketplace, which offers industrial site owners (eligible manufacturers and data centres) the chance to browse videos showcasing the potential technology that can reduce the energy demand and emissions associated with their industrial processes.
If you are an industrial site owner, by signing up for the Technology Marketplace you will be able to see videos pre-screened to ensure only technologies eligible for the IETF competitions are featured. Covering both energy efficiency and decarbonisation technology areas, they will give manufacturers and data centre owners ideas and contacts for technologies that could be deployed on their industrial sites in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
