Unleashing Innovation: Net Zero Innovation Portfolio
July 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm| Free
Join the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and KTN to understand the scope and priority areas of the £1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio. The NZIP will decrease the costs of decarbonisation and set the UK on the path to a low carbon future as we look to build back greener.
We are excited to announce that the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), in collaboration with KTN, will be hosting an online event to share details of the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio.
The UK has a deep pool of innovative companies working to combat climate change, and the Prime Minister’s 10 Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution emphasised how it will become the world’s number one centre for green technology. Through launching the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP) the Government committed £1 billion to accelerate the commercialisation of innovative low-carbon technologies, systems and processes in the power, buildings, and industrial sector.
The NZIP will fund UK based projects across ten priority areas including: future offshore wind; nuclear advanced modular reactors; energy storage and flexibility; bioenergy; hydrogen; homes; direct air capture; advanced CCUS; industrial fuel switching; and disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence for energy.
Innovation is crucial for further developing the green technologies needed to meet net zero. The NZIP will decrease the costs of decarbonisation and set the UK on the path to a low carbon future as we look to build back greener.
About this event
This Unleashing Innovation event will include a keynote by the Minister of State for Clean Growth Anne Marie-Trevelyan and feature a panel discussion with Sir Patrick Vallance, Government Chief Scientific Adviser. The discussion will also be an opportunity for audience members to participate in a Q&A.
There will be a briefing webinar which will include an opportunity to:
- hear about the scope of the NZIP in more detail
- understand the priority areas the NZIP will focus on
- reflect on the successes of the previous BEIS Energy Innovation Programme
By attending you will have a chance to hear first-hand testimonials from companies that have received BEIS funding, understand the current and future funding opportunities for your organisation, and hear directly from the Government on its vision for how innovation will help deliver on net zero.
