Event Details

Innovate UK in collaboration with BEIS, the Research Councils and the KTN, are seeking innovators, academics and thought leaders to participate in an engagement workshop on the 7th September, to review and validate the proposed Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) theme, “Prospering from the energy revolution” which has an aspiration to create a number of “whole system”, local energy demonstrators around the UK to accelerate the energy system transition.

Background

Secure, affordable and clean energy is critical to our economic productivity, competitiveness, and employment. Optimising the transition in the UK first helps our economy to thrive while also opens up domestic markets and immense export opportunities for UK businesses. The UK is taking a lead in the move to a cleaner system.

A series of local demonstrators across the UK is now essential to serve as ‘innovation runways’ that link up new solutions, assess and prove clean, affordable energy outcomes in the real world, and launch innovative businesses into commercial readiness, prepared for export.

Funding is not guaranteed for the programme. This engagement forms a vital part of the process to finalise a proposal on which funding decisions will be made in early autumn, alongside others dealing with challenges across the economy.

We are seeking to engage with stakeholders to:

  • Validate the scope of the challenge we are proposing
  • Understand the market opportunity
  • Ensure the programme time scales are reasonable
  • Gather feedback on the scale of investment that might be needed
  • To understand industry appetite to participate and co-fund
