Funding competition – Ofgem Round 3: Call for Ideas
This Call for Ideas forms part of a programme delivered with the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) in partnership with Innovate UK. This alignment enhances the programme’s ability to contribute to Government’s net zero objectives, while remaining dynamic, flexible and joined up with Government, industry and consumers. Ideas which advance through this process and develop into a project proposal led by an Energy Network may be offered the opportunity to seek funding from the Ofgem Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF). The fund aims to deliver net zero at the lowest cost to consumers and support innovative businesses. The SIF programme is investing up to £450 million in network innovation over the next 5 years. SIF is positioned to respond to industry obstacles and represents a major investment in the pace of innovation in the sector. This Call for Ideas is for potential solutions to these challenges which may develop into projects funded by the SIF Round 3. It offers innovators a chance to submit project ideas which are reviewed in a quick, easy and transparent manner. As part of the review process, you may be invited to pitch your idea to the Energy Networks, who will choose potential ideas to take forward and innovators to partner with.
