Scottish Industrial Energy Transformation Fund (SIETF)

Collection of guidance and application forms for funding to stimulate commercial interest and investment in decarbonising Scotland’s energy intensive industries to contribute to positive progress towards net zero targets.



The SIETF will provide grant funding to reduce energy costs and emissions through increased energy efficiency. Decisions on funding awards are weighted towards energy and/or carbon savings, therefore it is primarily aimed at businesses with high energy use.

The SIETF currently consists of two competitions, with funding profiled from 2021 to 2026. These are as follows:

  • energy efficiency and deep decarbonisation deployment projects
  • feasibility and front-end engineering design (FEED) studies 

See the guidance and application forms for these open SIETF competitions.

Please note the closing date for receipt of applications for both competitions is 5pm on 17 December 2021.

Advice and support landscape

The SIETF is positioned within a wider advice and support landscape for industrial users in Scotland seeking to improve energy efficiency.
