Industrial Heat Recovery Support (IHRS) Programme

The Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is running an Industrial Heat Recovery Support (IHRS) Programme, specifically designed to encourage and support industry investment in heat recovery technologies across England and Wales.

The government is supporting businesses that take part by providing them with the chance to bid for co-funding support from a total grant funding pot worth £18 million.

This will help businesses efforts to identify and invest in opportunities for recovering and reusing heat that would otherwise be wasted. For example it can help with heat recovery opportunities identified under Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) audits.

IHRS can help with the feasibility assessment and implementation of heat recovery opportunities. IHRS is technology neutral and so can support any type of commercially available heat recovery opportunity. The recovered waste heat can be used in many ways including: heating within the same industrial facility, converting it to power, or feeding it into a Heat Network.

IHRS can support carbon reduction, environmental and energy efficiency goals and help businesses to grow revenue, lower fuel costs and cut emissions.

So, applying to the programme could mean a benefit to your business and the climate too – it’s a win-win situation.
