The Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA), facilitated by the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, is a groundbreaking scheme supported through its Net Zero Innovation Portfolio. This initiative funds industrial-scale demonstrations of pioneering technologies designed to significantly reduce energy consumption, enhance resource efficiency, and curb carbon emissions. The IEEA is strategically crafted to foster partnerships between developers of efficient technologies and forward-thinking industrial companies willing to trial innovations on-site.
The IEEA is open to projects from all UK industry sectors that demonstrate either a novel technology (targeting Technology Readiness Level 5-8) or the application of an established technology in a novel way. This versatility ensures that a broad spectrum of innovations can contribute to the country’s journey towards a net-zero future.
Explore Demonstrated Technologies:
Discover the technological breakthroughs that are transforming industries. The IEEA serves as a platform to explore and learn from demonstrated technologies that have the potential to reshape the landscape of energy efficiency and sustainability.
Discover Current Projects:
Stay informed about ongoing projects that are part of the IEEA. Get insights into how cutting-edge technologies are being implemented and their impact on energy consumption, resource efficiency, and carbon emissions.
The IEEA is efficiently managed by the Carbon Trust, with invaluable support from Jacobs and KTN. This collaboration represents a unique opportunity for UK technology developers to bring their innovations to market and showcase the effectiveness of their technologies at scale in a real production environment.
