Energy Systems Catapult stepped up efforts in 2019-2020 to tackle some of the most difficult decarbonisation challenges on the way to Net Zero. Accelerated some truly innovative companies with our programmes and capabilities, while driving key government taskforces with hundreds of stakeholders.

The year began with the UK leading the world in committing to deliver Net Zero by 2050 and closed with the urgent challenge of responding to the threat of COVID-19 overshadowed everything else.

While for others in the Catapult Network that meant a shift (at least short-term) in focus and resource – for Energy Systems Catapult it meant doubling down on Net Zero. No one yet has a clear picture of how to get there, or what needs to be done in what order, or in which technologies to invest in. Never before has there been such a strong need for a coherent whole systems response, taking in the human, political, market, digital and physical aspects of the energy transition.
