Our ability to identify the right partners, with the right technical and market relevant capabilities, is what marks us out as an ideal partner to support the progression of your innovative solutions.

Competition aim

This competition aims to support the commercial roll-out and permanent installation of technologies at industrial sites.

Eligible technologies must have been proven to work through successful operations or be qualified through test and demonstration. This corresponds to Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) of 8, 9 and above.

Competition scope

Energy-saving solutions will differ from site to site, but some examples of eligible technologies include:

  • monitoring and management equipment that improves the efficiency of processes
  • more efficient heat exchange
  • more efficient driers
  • energy recovery from waste heat
  • energy recovery from waste pressure
  • onsite resource efficiency measures to reduce wastage and optimise use of raw materials
  • more efficient refrigeration or other cooling or heating measures necessary to create and maintain the operational temperature of the industrial process itself (including cooling technologies for data centres).

Fuel switching is permitted where it is essential to achieving energy efficiency improvements. Fuel switching must comply with eligibility criteria detailed in the supplementary Technological Scope for Energy Efficiency Studies and Deployment Projects guidance.

Partnering with CPI

CPI has a dedicated Bid Proposal Development Team with a higher than average success rate in securing grant funding.
