Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition is designed to accelerate clean
shipping development in line with the DfT's 2050 IMO compliant Plan,
links to which are at the foot of this page. This is just as tough a
challenge as electrifying
land transport, both strands ultimately in competition for renewable green
hydrogen, from electrolyzers.
22/03/2021 - Registration Closes: 02/06/2021
For Strand 1, your project must have total eligible costs between £25,000 and
must start by 1 September 2021, last up to 7 months and end by 31 March
2022. It's a very tight window, that you must be able to work within to
stand a chance of securing a percentage of development funding.
BACKGROUND & SUPPORTING INFORMATION
Minister’s Ten Points Plan speech for a Green Industrial Revolution announced this £20 million for a competition to develop clean maritime technology.
This one-year ‘springboard programme’ will lay the foundation for a network of real-world projects, gearing up maritime decarbonisation in the UK ahead of COP26.
This programme builds on the vision set out in the Department’s Clean Maritime Plan and underlines our commitment to addressing emissions from this sector.
Winning projects from this competition may be required to participate in and attend
London International Shipping Week in September 2021 and
COP26 in November
2021, including initiatives around these events and communications activity.

NOTES REFERENCE LINKS
The Department for Transport will work with
UK, part of UK Research and
Innovation, to invest up to £20m for innovative clean maritime and smart shipping projects. The
Secretary of State in 2018 was Chris
Grayling, Minister for Marine, Nus
Ghani, and Sec. of State from 2019; Grant
2019 the International
Maritime Organization set revised MARPOL
targets, aiming to cut Nitrous,
emissions from dirty bunker
fuels by 50% before 2050, and 100% by 2100, recognising that air
pollution from shipping would increase considerably if not curbed.
Horizon Europe is the EU's
€100 billion euro research and innovation programme, the European
equivalent of UKRI, 35% of which is allocated to achieving climate
objectives under the UN's SDG13
agendas, but where funding applications are extremely
complicated, and SMEs inevitably fall at the admin and finance hurdles.
