The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) recently opened the new Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) Phase 2: Spring 2022 competition and is hosting a ‘How to apply to the IETF’ webinar and a series of stakeholder clinics throughout the competition window to help and support businesses interested in applying for IETF funding. We are also holding a Technology Showcase event on 10 March to showcase some of the projects IETF is funding and what’s available in Phase 2. Our new 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 £60 million in grant funding through the new competition window, which runs from 31 January to 29 April 2022. The competition will provide grant funding towards the costs of feasibility and engineering studies, energy efficiency deployment projects and deep decarbonisation deployment projects.
To find out more about the £60 million IETF Phase 2: Spring 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 first ones taking place on 22 February 2022 and 8 March 2022.

We will be holding a webinar on Tuesday 1 March to explain the IETF application process in detail and also give a demonstration of the application portal. The event will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to hear from and speak to BEIS in detail about the IETF eligibility criteria and application process as well as get expert advice on how to complete the application form correctly.

We will be hosting a live event in Birmingham on Thursday 10 March to showcase some of the IETF’s funded projects. The event will include an opportunity to hear from manufacturing sites who are planning to deploy technologies to reduce their energy demand such as heat recovery, VAR, process controls and to reduce their carbon emissions such as carbon capture and fuel switching to hydrogen.
As well as helping you to understand how technology can assist your site to reach net zero carbon, it will be a great opportunity to network face to face and build partnerships for future IETF competition windows.

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.
