Event Details

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 invest up to £13 million in innovation projects to address the global need for clean, affordable and secure energy.

The aim of the Energy Catalyst competition 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 into this competition, 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 Competition Stream

These are technical feasibility projects. Projects can last up to 1 year, with total costs ranging from £50,000 to £300,000. 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.

Mid-Stage Competition Stream

These are industrial research projects. Projects can last up to 3 years, with total costs ranging from £50,000 to £1.5 million. Mid-stage projects must be collaborative and led by a UK business.

Late Stage Competition Stream

These are experimental development projects. Projects can last up to 3 years, with total costs ranging from £50,000 to £10 million. 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.

The competition opens on 24 April 2017. You must register before noon on 21 June 2017. The registration link will be available once the competition opens. You must apply before noon on 28 June 2017.

More detailed competition and registration information will be available on 24th April on the Innovate UK funding webpage. KTN will be holding three brokerage events:
