Some of the UK’s most economically active and industrially intensive areas are also some of the largest producers of carbon emissions, with around a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions being produced by industry.
Two competitions aim to help the UK achieve net zero emissions by 2050 as part of the Industrial Decarbonisation challenge, part of the government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund:
Competition 1 – deployment - UK businesses will have the opportunity to apply for a share of up to £1 million to develop plans for decarbonising an industrial cluster.
Competition 2 – roadmaps - UK organisations can apply for a share of up to £1 million to prepare plans for their journey to achieving low carbon and net zero industrial clusters.
The deadline for both competitions is midday on 4 December 2019.
