UK Request for Proposals on Emerging Climate Technology Projects

At the 2021 Global Investment Summit, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Bill Gates, the Founder of Breakthrough Energy, announced a new partnership to mobilise public and private funding in emerging climate technology projects located in the United Kingdom.

The UK-Catalyst Partnership expects to mobilise up to £400 million between 2022 and 2027 to drive investment into the next generation of emerging climate technologies that will help meet UK’s net zero target by 2050 and decrease the cost of decarbonisation.

To operationalise this collaboration, Breakthrough Energy Catalyst (Catalyst) has launched an RFP to identify and select emerging climate technology projects based in the United Kingdom for project-level financing.
