What is the Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge? →
The IDC aims to accelerate the cost-effective decarbonisation of industry by developing and deploying low-carbon technologies. It also aims to enable the deployment of infrastructure at scale by the mid-2020s.
It aims to boost the competitiveness of key industrial regions and drive inward investment, creating and protecting jobs for a low-carbon global economy with growing low-carbon export markets
The IDC is funded by £210 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund which is expected to be matched by funding of up to £261 million from industry.
IDRIC has been established as the “one stop shop” for research and innovation in decarbonisation. Its work supports knowledge exchange, regulation, policy and key skills, thus benefitting industry sectors and clusters across the UK.
In summary, IDRIC connects stakeholders, inspires and delivers innovation and maximises impact to help the UK industrial clusters to grow our existing energy intensive industrial sectors, and to attract new, advanced manufacturing industries of the future.
