The £4m of total project funding will be run in 11 technology areas in eight regions of the UK over the next two years. The public and private sector funding will be used to accelerate the uptake of energy efficiency in a range of industrial sectors from dairy and aggregates through to bakery and animal feeds. The project is anticipated to generate cost savings of up to £70m annually and 3,000 jobs in the manufacturing sector by 2020.”
