The Facility for Low Carbon Technology Deployment (FLCTD) is jointly implemented by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). FLCTD is supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
This 5-year project aims to promote innovation of low-carbon technologies and its deployment in industrial and other related sectors of Indian economy. FLCTD conducts annual 'Innovation Challenge' competitions that will identify innovative low carbon technologies and solutions to improve efficient end-use of energy with a focus on waste heat recovery, space cooling, and pumps and pumping systems. Winning technologies will be provided support for demonstration.
Over the course of the project, FLCTD will also work towards establishment of an innovation ecosystem for deployment support of low-carbon technologies. The ecosystem will verify and bring together appropriate networks and centres for research and deployment of low-carbon technologies. These centres will consist of technology specific, application oriented deployment groups. They shall act as connectors between several entities undertaking near-deployment trials and prototyping, critical stages of technology transfer and adoption. These ecosystem hubs will bring more stakeholders like financing agencies for sustaining the cleantech innovation space and shall provide recommendations to policymakers.
In 2018 - 13 winners were selected; in 2019 applications are in July
