Delivering the Clean Growth Plan: Transition to a Low Carbon Economy

March 14


The UK Government is setting out the long-term vision to deliver a more resource efficient energy market, minimise the costs to businesses and households, and seize the opportunities that a shift towards a low carbon economy present.

This one-day conference will explore the how the UK can decarbonise across domestic heat, transport, and energy intensive industries in line with the government’s Clean Growth Plan due to be published this autumn. We will be exploring how hydrogen fuel cell and Carbon Capture Storage technology can help the UK reduce its carbon emissions across four key areas: Managing energy demands in line with policy commitments; Domestic heat; Carbon Capture and Storage and Industrial Emissions; and Transport.

Delivering affordable energy for UK businesses is a challenge. There are 15 sectors in the economy – including chemicals, steel, glassmaking and ceramics – where energy costs represent over ten percent of total business expenditure. The government is reviewing the opportunities to reduce the costs of achieving our decarbonisation goals in the power and industry sectors and deliver a long-term roadmap to minimise business energy costs. The aim is position the UK economy to benefit from technological transformation and innovation that will be in demand across the world.
