What We Do

Description

Funding for all industrial manufacturing sectors in the England and Wales to further understand the identified challenges and barriers to adoption, and to increase industrial confidence in deploying heat recovery technologies by working with industry to address these barriers.

Current Status Open for Applications
Maximum value: £ 1,500,000

Objectives of Fund

Industrial heat recovery is a process by which heat generated in or for an industrial process, that otherwise would be wasted, is recovered and utilised. This waste heat can be used within the same industrial facility for heat or cooling, by another end-user (eg via a new or existing heat network), or by converting the waste heat to power.

Industrial heat recovery has the potential to realise significant energy bill and carbon savings for industry through a reduction in primary fuel use. It therefore contributes to the Government’s aims of achieving a low cost, clean and secure energy system, and can also provide competitiveness and productivity gains, giving it strong links with the Industrial Strategy.

BEIS has developed the Industrial Heat Recovery Support (IHRS) Programme to further understand the identified challenges and barriers to adoption, and to increase industrial confidence in deploying heat recovery technologies by working with industry to address these barriers. The anticipated outcome is that the programme will lead to more efficient and productive use of industrial energy, lower fuel bills or a new revenue stream for industry, and a reduction in carbon emissions.

Value Notes

There is up to £18 million of funding available to support the uptake of industrial heat recovery projects which will be allocated as grants through a competitive process.

Funding is available in two phases:
•Phase 1 Feasibility studies: £6 million total budget with a maximum matched fund per project of 50%
•Phase 2 Capital funding: £12 million total budget with a maximum matched fund per project of 30%.

The maximum grant funding for Phase 1 feasibility study, Phase 1 preliminary engineering and Phase 2 detailed design, in total, shall not exceed £450,000.

The maximum grant funding for Phase 2 Construction, Commissioning, Operation Start-up, Monitoring and Evaluation, in total, shall not exceed £1.5 million.

Match Funding Restrictions

The remainder of the necessary project costs must be secured through alternative sources to this programme.

Who Can Apply

The programme will be open to companies in all industrial manufacturing sectors in England and Wales that have significant heating and/ or cooling processes.

Eligible Expenditure

The programme will provide matched funding for feasibility studies and the capital cost of implementing industrial heat recovery projects in England and Wales.

How To Apply

The IHRS Programme is now open to all applications. Potential applicants are invited to submit their Application Registration form from 15 October 2018 onwards. The Application Registration form is available on the IHRS webpage. Interested parties should follow these four key steps:

•Step 1: complete the Application Registration Form and email it to ihrsprogramme@icf.com
•Step 2: once the registration confirmation email has been received, submit the relevant Checkpoint form, following the instructions provided.
•Step 3: when approval has been granted to proceed with the full application, submit the Application Workbook.
•Step 4: applications will then be competitively assessed during the next assessment window, and applicants will be notified of the outcome

Grant applications and assessments will take place over a number of windows. The submission deadline for each monthly assessment window is the last day of each month. The earlier windows will have more funding allocated to them than later windows. This is done to maximise the available time available to projects from successful application to the Programme ending in March 2021. It will also allow projects applying at Phase 1 to also progress to and complete Phase 2.

One the scheme is open, applications will be assessed on a rolling basis. They can be submitted at any time, with ‘assessment windows’ closing every two months.

The applications will need to meet criteria based on:
•Potential for results
•Deliverability
•Economic case

The programme is due to run until March 2021.
