The commercialisation of energy technologies and services is vital for the success of our Government’s commitment to achieve Net Zero by 2050. Yet many businesses do not have access to the support services needed to research, test and grow their innovations.
The University of Birmingham in partnership with the Energy Systems Catapult, is looking for businesses committed to driving energy technology innovation to join the Climate Innovation Platform (CIP). Supported by HSBC UK and part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), CIP offers businesses a package of tailored support to drive the commercialisation of innovative energy products and services. Ideal SMEs responding to this challenge will be seeking to enter or are active across the energy system, using technology to deliver new business models or solutions in an innovative way. Those selected for the second CIP Low Carbon Energy Solutions Innovator Challenge will have access to several linked opportunities:
- Access to funding and supply chain networks
- Business development
- Dedicated support team
- Energy Launchpad
- HSBC’s Climate Solution Partnership
- Incubation space
- Market insights
- Manufacturing support
The application round for the second Low Carbon Energy Solutions Innovator Challenge is now open and will close 29 April.
