Strategic Funding
Call for Strategic Projects - deadline January 20th 2023
The North East and Yorkshire Net Zero Hub maintains a pipeline of project proposals which support delivery of the Hub’s strategic priorities. Pipeline projects may be funded from the Hub’s own strategic funds or brought forward for BEIS or alternative funds when these become available.

Through this pipeline we aim to have a broad overview of potential net zero schemes across the Hub region which may be suitable for additional support.

To maintain the pipeline of projects we are committed to refreshing our portfolio, bi-annually, in January and October. This provides an opportunity for new projects to be put forward for consideration, and updated projects to be resubmitted.

Projects should further the broader purpose of the Hub and link to one or more of the Hub’s strategic priorities:

Heat Decarbonisation

Heat decarbonisation seeks to utilise technological solutions in order to reduce environmental emissions from heating a property.

Renewable Energy Technologies

Renewable energy technologies are solutions that produce energy from a source that does not deplete upon usage e.g. solar power.

Natural Carbon Sequestration

Natural sequestration is the process of using the natural environment to store carbon.

Circular Economy

Circular economy projects seek to re-use materials and inputs in order to reduce waste and environmental impact.


It is expected that projects seeking funding are likely to require in the region of £20,000 – £100,000, although those with funding amounts at the higher end will need to include match funding. Projects with funding requests outside of these parameters may be considered by exception.

Projects will initially be considered for inclusion into the Hub’s project pipeline and for any funding that is immediately available. Projects accepted into the pipeline but not immediately funded will be brought forward for consideration when new funding opportunities arise.
