The Innovation Fund is a dedicated funding program for the deployment and scaling of innovative low-carbon technologies, with the goal of bringing to market industrial solutions to decarbonize Europe. The Innovation Fund is supported by proceeds from the auctioning of EU Emissions Trading System allowances.

To date, the Commission has issued two calls for small-scale projects (total capital costs exceeding EUR 2.5 million and less than EUR 7.5 million), each with a budget of EUR 100 million, in the energy-intensive industries, renewables, energy storage, and carbon capture, use, and storage.
