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.

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 funding will support the advancement of place-based industrial decarbonisation plans. This will involve collaboration between closely located industrial businesses and other stakeholders, as well as upskilling their capabilities ahead of introducing low-emission technologies.

The objectives of the competition are as follows:

  1. To support the development of credible, context-sensitive, strategic plans for decarbonising local industrial clusters.
  2. To increase organisational collaboration and strengthen decarbonisation planning skills, capacity and capability in local industrial clusters.
  3. 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.
