SBRI for NZIP Energy Storage Programme – Longer Duration Storage Demonstration (Stream 2)

The Longer Duration Energy Storage Demonstration Programme forms part as part of the £1bn Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP).
The Programme will support the demonstration of innovative longer duration energy storage technologies which provide grid flexibility, through funding provided by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

This SBRI Competition for Stream 2 (the Competition) is a £30.5M funding opportunity for ~3 to demonstrate first-of-a-kind longer duration (minimum 4 hours) energy storage facilities, using innovative storage technologies.

The aim of the Competition is to further accelerate commercialisation of innovative energy storage technologies; focusing on technologies that provide longer duration storage capability and can provide novel services/system benefits.

The Competition will seek to achieve this aim by providing projects with funding under the SBRI towards capital expenditure (CAPEX). This support will enable full-system prototypes for technologies of technology readiness levels (TRLs) between 4 and 5.
