Scope of invitation

Please note the closing date for receipt of applications for this competition is 5pm on 26 February 2021.

This competition invites Scottish industries to apply for grant funding, which must be match funded, to deploy energy efficiency technologies at manufacturing or processing sites across Scotland. This fair and open funding invitation has been designed to accelerate the delivery of energy efficiency deployment projects that support the ambitions for Scotland to achieve net zero emissions by 2045. Separate guidance has been published for competition 2 to support feasibility and Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) studies.

'Energy efficiency' means an amount of saved energy determined by measuring and/or estimating consumption before and after implementation of an energy efficiency improvement measure, whilst ensuring normalisation for external conditions that affect energy consumption. European Commission – GBER

Proposals for energy efficiency deployment projects must:

  • improve energy efficiency of an industrial process at a site located in Scotland
  • install and commission the energy efficiency measure. The technology must already be proven to work through test and demonstration and/or successful operation (TRL 8 or 9). Previous test and demonstration and/or successful operation of the technology does not have to be at the applicant’s site.
  • not have gone ahead in its current form without SIETF funding

This support will provide financial assistance for up to 50% of the total eligible capital costs of a project, where capital costs covers financial costs associated with the build and installation of an exemplar project (i.e. purchasing of physical assets).
