£3m Key Technology Components for Local Energy Systems competition
A new funding competition has been launched as part of the Prospering from the Energy Revolution Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund
As part of the Industrial Strategy the government will invest in the Prospering from the Energy Revolution Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) to make the UK a global centre for integrated energy systems that deliver cleaner and cheaper energy.
The ¬£3m Key Technology Components for Local Energy Systems competition will support the development of components of an energy system that will strengthen the development of smart, local energy systems of the future that make the best use of cheaper renewables, energy storage, electric vehicles, energy efficiency, low carbon heat and digital infrastructure.
KTN will be running two briefing events and a webcast giving details about the opportunities available through the competition. ¬†The events are being run on behalf of¬†UK Research and Innovation¬†and Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
The Prospering from the Energy Revolution Challenge Fund will support industry, academia, public bodies and local communities to develop a world-leading, smart local energy systems industry in the UK. We expect this industry to be worth billions of pounds by the early 2020s, supporting tens of thousands of new high-value jobs associated with design, testing, manufacture, financing, installation and operation of new energy products and services across the wider low carbon energy economy.

15 July, webcast for those unable to attend either briefing in person
Enabling smart local energy systems
We live, work and travel in regions, cites, towns and communities, but energy systems are still very centralised. UKRI’s Prospering from the Energy Revolution programme explored the potential of smart local energy systems and place-based approaches.
