All UK refineries are eligible for a range of Government schemes aimed at supporting the development of low carbon solutions in the sector.

For example, the Industrial Energy Transformation Fund supports industrial sites including those in the refinery sector with high energy use to transition to a low carbon future. The Department manages the IETF for England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, while the Scottish Government administers the SIETF. The two schemes have an allocation of over £500m of investment by 2028.

The spring window of Phase 3 of the IETF is open for applications now.
