Apply for the Saltire Tidal Energy Challenge Fund

This £10 million fund aims to help commercial deployment of tidal projects. Deployment of projects has been extended to September 2020.

What is available

The award of funding may take the form of a grant, loan or other form of repayable assistance, and will be discussed with successful projects.

A total of up to £10 million is available through the fund.

Individual applications are invited for funding of up to £5 million which must be match funded. Match funding must not be from other Scottish public sector grant funding sources, however applications using public sector commercial funding will be considered.

Applications should detail the preferred form of support, and provide a forecast of when funding is expected to be drawn.

Applications are restricted to one per organisation, including applications as part of any group or consortium.

The fund is open to applications until 6 December 2019 or until the fund is exhausted.

Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis and assessed against the eligibility criteria.
