Event description


£170m Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge (IDC)

UKRI, in collaboration with the dept for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, is seeking to invest up to £1 million to support collaborative projects to plan their route to cluster decarbonisation as part of the £170m Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge (IDC).


As part of the UK’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF), the IDC programme aims to accelerate the cost-effective decarbonisation of industry by developing and deploying low-carbon technologies. It aims to enable the deployment of infrastructure at scale by the mid-2020s.

It will support delivery of the Clean Growth Grand Challenge and the Industrial Clusters Mission, which has set an ambitious target to establish at least one low-carbon industrial cluster by 2030 and the world’s first net-zero carbon industrial cluster by 2040. The Mission, and this challenge, will help to place the UK at the forefront of the global shift to Clean Growth, by driving the technologies, services and markets to produce low carbon industrial products.

What is the opportunity?

This initial £1m competition represents Phase 1 of a 2-phase competition
process and will enable clusters to develop their ideas for two strands of funding;

Strand 1. Deployment of a low carbon industrial cluster
Strand 2. Roadmap development for a low carbon industrial cluster
