ISCF Prospering from the Energy Revolution, Modernising energy data access competition £1.9m

As part of the Industrial Strategy the Government will invest in the “Prospering from the Energy Revolution” Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) to make the UK a global centre for integrated energy systems that deliver cleaner and cheaper energy. UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), in collaboration with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), would like to invite you to attend a briefing event on the 16th October in London to hear about the new funding competition, Modernising energy data access and how you can get involved.


The world is embarking on a revolution in how energy is supplied. Over the coming decades, at least $2 trillion each year will be invested around the world in the transition to low carbon power, transport, heat and localised, digitally-connected energy systems. The UK has world-leading energy and environmental researchers, businesses, policy, regulation, technologies, infrastructure and innovators. We believe that integrating these through a smart local energy systems approaches will give the UK the opportunity to develop an industry built around delivering new consumer-friendly energy services and markets that are cheaper, cleaner, flexible, and more resilient to environmental and social change.

The aim of this competition is to solve the fundamental problem of exchanging digital energy information between energy organisations and with other stakeholders. This problem is a critical one to solve, in order to help UK achieve its Net Zero emission ambitions, which will require further decarbonisation of our energy supply and demand across heat, power and transport.

What is the opportunity?

The £1.9m Modernising energy data access competition will accelerate the development of tools and processes that will revolutionise data services for the energy sector. The solutions developed should demonstrate how they can achieve digital information exchanges that minimises technical burden and provide an effective user experience. The solutions should meet the needs of people within the energy sector and those of people from other sectors, so that they can more easily deliver products and services.

This competition is motivated by the vision for a modern, digitalised energy system in the recent Energy Data Taskforce recommendation report.

The briefing events will include:

  • an opportunity to hear about the scope of the competition in more detail
  • opportunities to network and develop ideas and partnerships for the competition
  • an opportunity to meet and explore ideas with UKRI, BEIS, OFGEM and wider stakeholders
