Ofgem Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF)
The Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) and Innovate UK have announced the challenge areas for the third round of SIF which will open for applications in early September 2023. Energy network companies working with other innovators can apply for up to £150,000 for a feasibility study to develop their ideas in response to the challenges.
The challenges are:
- whole system planning and utilisation of networks to facilitate faster and cheaper network transformation and asset rollout,
- novel technical, process and market approaches to deliver an equitable and secure net zero power system,
- unlocking energy system flexibility to accelerate electrification of heat,
- enabling power-to-gas [P2G] to provide system flexibility and energy network optimisation.
