In episode 2 of the IETF podcast we will hear from industrial sites both large and small who are actively decarbonising their manufacturing operations with support from the IETF.

Focussing on industrial energy efficiency, we speak to Tim Shire from Essar UK and Alex Patrick-Smith from Hinton Perry and Davenhill on why industrial decarbonisation is important to them and what they plan to deploy on their sites in the North West and Midlands respectively.

About the series

In order to have a thriving industrial sector, whilst also meeting the UK’s net zero carbon targets, we need to support the energy intensive industries to reduce their energy demand and carbon emissions associated with their industrial processes.

The Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (IETF) provided by the Dept for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is providing capital investment to industrial sites to help them to deploy industrial energy efficiency and decarbonisation technologies and make a difference right now. (Applications are open until 9th September 2022.)

Innovate UK KTN and BEIS are pleased to share this short podcast series with you. The discussions led by Innovate UK KTN’s Jenni McDonnell MBE will talk to different stakeholders including policy makers, industrial sites and delivery partners who are helping industrial sites to understand what they could achieve by taking advantage of this opportunity.

Whether you are an industrial site owner, technology provider or someone who is interested in our journey to net zero, why not tune in? We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on the topics covered and hope you enjoy this short podcast series.
