Energy Catalyst Round 4 Now Open

DFID and EPSRC are funding this competition with a budget of up to £9 million. The aim is to speed up commercialisation of UK energy innovation. It will help deliver clean, affordable and resilient energy. DFID funding is for projects that are relevant to the needs of developing countries.

The Energy Catalyst supports businesses and researchers from any sector. Proposals can focus on markets anywhere in the world. Proposals must contribute to all elements of the energy trilemma - low carbon, security of supply and affordability. We recognise that some solutions may have a bias to one or two of these elements.

Innovations could include, for example:

  • new technologies
  • enhancement or alternative applications of existing technologies
  • development of components, sub-systems or systems
  • integrated whole-system approaches
  • enabling technologies for the energy system

We encourage proposals which bring innovative new solutions into the energy sector and its supply chain. We also want to encourage cross-cutting and enabling technologies which can apply across a range of sectors. For example, high-value manufacturing, advanced materials, sensors and information and communication technologies (ICT).

Competition dates

  • the deadline for registration is noon on 7 September 2016
  • the competition closes at noon on 14 September 2016
