Innovate UK wants to invest up to £1.5 million in technical feasibility studies to encourage new entrants to the energy sector and stimulate the adoption of disruptive technologies. A further £500,000 is also available from the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) for support of relevant projects.
In order to encourage novel and radical solutions, projects must be led by an SME whose main business lies outside the energy sector. They can work alone or collaboratively with partners of any size from any sector.
