The Department is engaging and working closely with industry partners on the delivery of the Industrial Clusters Mission. We are providing funding, through the £170 million Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge, to support industry with the deployment of low carbon technologies in industrial clusters.

Through the BEIS Energy Innovation Programme the Department has committed £20 million towards assessing the opportunity for industry to switch to low carbon fuels. The Industrial Fuel Switching competition is supporting four projects based across the UK to trial these alternative fuels, improving our understanding on the impact they may have on industry.
