Supporting the Industrial Strategy


Energy Systems Catapult is playing a central coordinating role in the UK Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund – Prospering from the Energy Revolution.

Launched by UK Research and Innovation, ESC will deliver project integration, innovation services and technical expertise through the ‘‘Energy Revolution Integration Service’, ensuring the projects are coherent with the whole energy system and add up to more than the sum of their parts.

UK organisations/consortiums can apply for a share of up to £41.5 million to organise world-leading practical demonstrations of smart energy systems or to design new concepts. The fund is split into two parts:

  • Up to £40 million for three smart local energy systems: demonstrators
  • Up to £1.5 million for studies into smart local energy systems: concepts and designs.
