As part of our Energy Landscape Series, Energy Systems Catapult has identified over 60 companies in its first scoping of the UK’s Hydrogen Landscape. We are calling on UK businesses to review the first scoping of this infographic to suggest any additional subsectors which can be incorporated and to identify where they should be classified in the landscape.
Richard Halsey, Capabilities Director, will be speaking ‘Insight60: Hydrogen in homes – The future of heat’ webinar, June 3rd 2021.
Richard Halsey, Capabilities Director, is speaking at a WEET Conference: ‘Growing the hydrogen economy in the UK’ on the 26th May 2021.
Homes and workplaces account for around 21% of Scotland’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Over the next 24 years building will be transformed so they are warmer, greener and more efficient. This draft Strategy, which updates both the Energy Efficient Scotland Route Map and the Heat Policy Statement, sets out how Scotland will achieve that ambition.
This hydrogen pathway presents ten key objectives, which will help to generate momentum in the Welsh hydrogen sector and lay the foundations for scale-up and commercial deployment from the end of the 2020s. The objectives cover both hydrogen supply and end use, with a focus on short-term opportunities where the commercial case is more developed.
Greater Manchester is developing a Local Energy Market and Energy Systems Catapult has been appointed to support development of Local Area Energy Plans across the 10 boroughs of the city.
The UK has made great progress in decarbonising electricity over the past decade. Tackling transport and heat will be next, where the potential of digitalisation will be crucial. Policymakers face a raft of challenges. Energy Systems Catapult believes the architecture of the energy system requires a rethink. Strategy and Performance Director Guy Newey explains.
Energy Systems Catapult has selected three sectors highlighted recently in the Prime Minister’s 10-point plan, and produced Energy Landscapes to showcase the exciting UK innovation and supply chain in these areas. We would like you to have your say on who should appear in the final Electric Vehicle, Hydrogen, and Smart Heating & Cooling Landscapes.
The Prime Minister’s 10-point package marks the first substantial climate intervention by a PM since the start of the coalition. That matters. It gives a clear signal outside and, just as importantly, inside Government that Net Zero is a priority.
New analysis has found that committing to a further 10GW of new nuclear beyond Hinkley Point C is a low regrets option for the UK as it targets a Net Zero economy, but that costs need to fall significantly if the technology is to fulfil its long-term potential.
The analysis in Nuclear for Net Zero has found there is a credible path available to realise significant nuclear cost reduction delivering potentially lower costs and risks associated with achieving UK Net Zero.
If we are to achieve our Net Zero targets, we will require more than just technological innovation – but innovation in consumer propositions, business models, and the markets that allow them to happen. And this requires robust and enduring policies and regulation, argues Dr Danial Sturge.
