Decarbonising energy networks, with the aim of creating a net zero power system by 2035, is a huge and urgent undertaking.

With funding of around £450 million, Ofgem’s Strategic Innovation Fund responds to the challenge and represents a major investment in the pace of innovation in the sector, funded by energy consumers through the price cap mechanism.

The SIF programme is managed by Innovate UK, as Ofgem’s delivery partner. This short report covers Innovate UK’s role and progress in delivering the SIF since its launch in 2021, and what happens next.
