The SIF allows projects to compete for progressively higher levels of funding, through a phased application model.

Following on from their discovery phase, these 44 successful projects can go on to compete for:

  • alpha proof of concept funding (up to £500,000 over six months)
  • beta large-scale demonstrator funding (no upper limit of funding and lasting up to five years)

Projects are led by energy network companies, working in partnership with innovators and partner organisations.
