Low Carbon Innovation Funding Invitation

Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme

Low Carbon Innovation Funding Invitation

In September 2017 the Scottish Government committed to invest up to £60 million to deliver innovative low carbon energy infrastructure solutions across Scotland, such as electricity battery storage, sustainable heating systems and low emissions transport.

This fair and open funding invitation has been designed to accelerate the delivery of large scale innovative low carbon infrastructure projects that support the ambitions set out within the recently published Scottish Energy Strategy.

Projects must be of a significant scale and must be based in Scotland. This support will provide financial assistance for up to 50% of the total capital value of a project up to a maximum of £10 million per project, where capital value covers financial costs associated with the build and installation of an exemplar project (i.e. purchasing of physical assets). The successful projects will be innovative in design incorporating one or more low carbon technologies, demonstrating economic, social and low carbon benefits for Scotland.

This financial support has been designed to encourage innovation of both design and business models.  The financial support focuses on low carbon and/or renewable electricity and heat generation solutions and measures which will enable the transition to ultra-low emission vehicles for Scotland.  As a result this will contribute to Scotland carbon reduction ambitions.
