The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) recently opened the new Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) Phase 2: Autumn 2022 competition and is hosting 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 Non-Road Mobile Machinery webinar on 26 October and a Technology Showcase event on 17 November 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 £70 million in grant funding through the new competition window, which runs from 10 October 2022 to 13 January 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.
IETF stakeholder clinics
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 25 October 2022 and 8 November 2022.

IETF Non-Road Mobile Machinery webinar
We will be holding a webinar on Wednesday 26 October to explain the new aspects of the IETF guidance relating to non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) (such as forklifts, crushers, off-highway trucks, cranes, or excavators) and how the fund can offer support to improve the energy efficiency and decarbonisation of NRMM used as an integral part of the industrial process onsite. The event will also give an overview of the new Red Diesel Replacement R&D funding available through BEIS’s Net Zero Innovation Portfolio.

IETF Technology Showcase event
We will be hosting a live event in London on Thursday 17 November 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 IETF competition windows and applications.

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.
