Industrial decarbonisation: The role of gas for a green economic recovery
The decarbonisation of industrial clusters is of critical importance to the UK’s ambitions of cutting greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2050. The UK Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF) aims to establish the world’s first net-zero carbon industrial cluster by 2040 and at least one low-carbon cluster by 2030. Decarbonisation is also critical for a green economic recovery, as the country emerges from the current crisis caused by COVID-19.
Professor Maroto-Valer discussed the role of gas as an enabler of the energy transition and decarbonisation of industrial sectors.
The lecture was chaired by Dr Adam Hawkes and Professor Nigel Brandon including live Q&A.

The Inevitable Policy Response to climate change
17-18 November 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the capacity of governments worldwide to take drastic action in the face of a crisis. As the realities of climate change become increasingly apparent, it is inevitable that governments will be forced to act more decisively on this issue too.
This session will update investors on the Inevitable Policy Response forecast, and explain how climate scenarios can be used in both risk analysis and engagement with companies.
Our Executive Director Jason Eis spoke at the PRI’s Digital Forum: Americas, running from 17-18 November.
