In October 2020, the Energy Research Partnership brought together key industry, academic and government stakeholders to discuss the environmental constraints of net zero focussing on CCUS and Hydrogen. The plenary set out to review environmental constraints as strategic considerations of all deployments of low and zero carbon technologies, not just those in regional clusters.
Focuses on fabric energy efficiency for reducing heat demand, exploring why this opportunity is not being fully exploited.
There is a narrow time window to deliver CO2-EOR. Policy decisions made by 2017 on Phase 1 & 2 CCS will determine the extent that the benefits from CO2-EOR are realised.
ERP seeks to understand the gap between energy aspirations of UK cities and the regulatory / policy frameworks, processes and factors required to achieve them.
Sought to assess the UK’s carbon abatement trajectory relative to those of Germany, Japan, US, China and India.
The review identifies the opportunities from, and addresses the challenges to further development of bio-energy technologies by 2050.
ERP’s work in this area aims to provide an overview of the development of CCS and provide input to inform decisions about demonstration projects.
