The Department for International Development (DFID), the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) are to support innovation projects to address the global need for clean, affordable and secure energy.
The aim of the Energy Catalyst is to support highly innovative, market-focused energy solutions in any technology or sector or international market.
Proposals must address all 3 elements of the energy trilemma: cost, emissions, and security of supply.
Energy Catalyst is open to any UK organisation and may also include international partners. You should apply into the stream most closely aligned with your project. Universities and SMEs are encouraged to apply. Research organisations may lead early-stage feasibility projects.
There are 3 options to apply, referred to as Streams, and run in parallel. The Streams are dependent on the stage your project is at: early stage, mid-stage and late stage. Your should choose the stream that broadly reflects the technical and commercial readiness of projects.
Early Stage Stream
These are technical feasibility projects. Projects can last up to 1 year. Research organisations may lead early-stage projects, in partnership with at least one UK business. Or, UK SMEs can lead early-stage projects, with or without partners.
These are industrial research projects. Projects can last up to 3 years. Mid-stage projects must be collaborative and led by a UK business.
Late Stage Stream
These are experimental development projects. Projects can last up to 3 years. Late-stage projects must be collaborative and led by a UK business.
All projects must include at least one UK business. We expect most projects to start on 1 January 2018.
