Energy, Environment & Climate

17 January 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding is available for businesses from across the world to support technology-based solutions that will reduce offshore emissions, accelerate clean energy production, and help the UK reach net zero.

The Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC) has launched its 2023 Open Innovation Programme aimed at developing and deploying data and digital technologies that will reduce offshore emissions, accelerate clean energy production, and enable delivery of the UK’s net zero ambitions.

Businesses can apply for funding to support their technology development and deployment projects. Projects must support the transition towards net zero with an obligation of trialling and deploying technology within the UK continental shelf.

Each grant request can be from £50,000 up to £500,000. As well as funding, supported projects will gain access to data, facilities, and technical expertise from industry.

Businesses of any size from across the world may apply. They can work alone with others from business, research organisations, research and technology organisations or subcontractors.

Proposals that involve all the necessary stakeholders relevant to the proposed innovation, including end users of the solution, are sought.

The deadline for applications is 17 February 2023.


How To Apply

The deadline for applications is 17 February 2023.
