The Energy Catalyst is open to innovative businesses and researchers from any sector with projects that address three major challenges facing the energy industry. These challenges are:

  • reducing emissions
  • improving security of supply
  • reducing cost

This so-called ‘energy trilemma’ creates major global opportunities that UK businesses are well-placed to take advantage of.

The Energy Catalyst offers three types of funding award:

Early-stage projects must be led by an SME or a research organisation working with a business. Mid-stage and late-stage projects must be led by a business working with other partners.

Total project costs can be up to £200,000 for early-stage awards, up to £1.5 million for mid-stage awards and up to £10 million for late-stage awards.

The deadline for registration is noon 18 November 2015. A webinar briefing takes place on Wednesday 20 May 2015 from 13.30-15.30.

The Energy Catalyst is run by Innovate UK, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
