The Strategic Innovation Fund (SIF), which promotes energy network innovation, was launched in August 2021. The fund is expected to invest £450 million in energy network innovation from 2021-2026, with the option to extend and increase as necessary. The SIF is a major opportunity for innovative businesses and academics to work with energy networks on innovative projects that will deliver benefits to consumers.
Delivered in partnership with Innovate UK, the programme has already run its first competition, with the results to be announced shortly. More will follow later in 2022.
Innovate UK is soon to begin a regular update newsletter about the SIF. If you have not signed up already, please join the mailing list here to stay up to date with the latest developments.
