Innovate UK are launching a SBRI competition: Net Zero heat and power upgrades for demand reduction phase 1.

Organisations can apply for a share of up to £5 million (across phase 1 and 2) to develop data driven approaches for upgrading portfolios of buildings. This will accelerate the shift to a net zero economy and reduce carbon emissions, heat usage and energy demands.

The aim of the competition is to accelerate the shift to a net zero economy by developing and testing scalable service propositions. These must reduce bills and carbon emissions from buildings with the intention of commercialising the results beyond phase 2 of the competition.

This call is for phase 1 feasibility studies for future development of data driven approach to assessing and defining appropriate pathways for:

  • the upgrading of building portfolios
  • targeting decarbonisation
  • energy demand reduction
  • market demand certainty
  • heat efficiency

You must work with relevant supply chains and the owners of portfolios of public, commercial and domestic buildings to develop and test an approach to delivering future building upgrade programmes.

For more information, watch the briefing video above and download the slides.
