The Net Zero Technology Centre has just announced a new £10m funding round for the development of technologies that will assist the energy transition to Net Zero.
The funding round is split into two calls, one open from the 16th of March and the other to come in October. There are seven technology focus areas and information on all of these can be found on the NZTC web site here: https://www.netzerotc.com/funding/funding-competition/
Businesses can apply for a share of £7 million available in the first funding window, with a maximum of £1 million to be awarded to each successful project. The projects must support the transition towards net zero with an obligation of trialling and deploying technology within the UK continental shelf. As well as funding, the projects will also gain access to data facilities and technical expertise from industry.
Topics include Renewables and Energy Storage and the Hydrogen and Clean Fuels, featuring further focus areas which include Substructures and Foundations, Cabling, Energy Storage and Management, Alternative Fuel Production (ammonia, methanol etc) and Marine and Pipeline Ancillary Systems
Digital and data architecture, smart assets and field automation will be technology focus areas within the £3 million second open innovation programme in October.
