If you’re looking for help to develop an innovation that will solve a problem or drive efficiency in offshore renewable energy, SCORE grants maybe what you’re looking for. 

SCORE is a £6 million grant fund supporting small and medium sized companies that are developing new technologies. Grants are available for up to 30% of eligible costs or £50,000, whichever is the lowest, with a minimum grant of £2,500.

If your company has a base  in England and the economic benefit of the project will be in Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk or Suffolk you could be eligible for funding to develop a new product, process  or idea. Anything from patenting a new product to exploring concepts that offer new ways of looking at the generation of offshore  renewable energy.

SCORE can put you in touch with engineers, researchers and specialists in business growth technology accelerations and product commercialisation from their partners at Nwes, Nautilus Associates and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult. Their support is free of charge to eligible companies operating in offshore wind, wave and tidal, other marine renewable energy technologies and their direct supply chains.
