Local Industrial Decarbonisation Plans (LIDP) Competition
Closing Date: 02/08/2023
This competition provides funding for UK organisations to develop projects for dispersed industrial clusters which will develop place-based decarbonisation plans.
This competition is jointly operated by Innovate UK (IUK) and the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ).
The Local Industrial Decarbonisation Plans Competition (LIDP) provides support for industrial manufacturers, not located within the UK’s existing industrial clusters, to develop plans to reduce their emissions and avoid carbon leakage.
The objectives of the competition are as follows:
- To support the development of credible, context-sensitive, strategic plans for decarbonising local industrial clusters.
- To increase organisational collaboration and strengthen decarbonisation planning skills, capacity and capability in local industrial clusters.
- To gather evidence to inform decarbonisation of other local industrial clusters and dispersed sites.
Through use of the fund, IUK expects organisations to come together to form local clusters, which can be made up of closely located industrial businesses and other stakeholders, with the aim to establish a detailed, implementable plan for decarbonisation of their cluster.
