IEFT: Supporting industrial manufacturers deliver decarbonisation

Jenni McDonnell from Innovate UK KTN joins Alex Cameron to discuss IEFT, the successful funding programme from the UK Government.

This episode focuses on co-funding energy efficiency improvements using mature market-ready tech, this is a great chance to find out how to apply and win the next round of competitions and to learn how others are putting funds to good use.

The Knowledge Transfer Networks role in the Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) is to connect the innovators and manufacturers with grant-based funding that can be applied to energy efficiency projects. Given that a key element of decarbonisation is in reducing energy consumption in basic processes and operations, find out how the IETF’s funding pot of £315m is being put to use and lessons learned to date.

Decarb Connect supports the acceleration of industrial decarbonisation around the globe. We share insights and facilitate collaborations across the emerging decarbonisation ecosystem. We look specifically at the most energy-intensive industrials from cement, metals and mining, glass, ceramics, chemicals, O&G and many more and help connect them to technology disruptors, investors and advisors.

Through the Decarbonisation Leaders Network (DLN), our members (a cross-sector network of those leading decarbonisation in energy-intensive industries) share insights and experiences as they accelerate their Net Zero plans. Check out Decarb Connect’s offerings and learn about the Decarbonisation Leaders Network members, meetups and benefits.
