Net zero in manufacturing: Who’s in charge?

Recent research by Drax looked at how UK manufacturing bodies are reaching net zero carbon emissions

Net zero emissions: Scientists to turn research into real-world solutions and technologies

Projects include monitoring woodlands using drones, exploring molten salt fast reactors and capturing carbon and injecting it into underground rocks

Digital solutions sought to reduce energy demand and carbon production

Funding worth £400,000 is being offered for research projects to explore the role of digital technologies in supporting a data-enabled net zero transition

UK opens new £105m advanced materials research and innovation hub

The Henry Royce Institute Hub building hosts state-of-the-art equipment and facilities for sustainable materials, metals processing, digital fabrication and biomedical materials research

UK researchers offered up to £2m to explore zero carbon hydrogen

Proposals that will develop solutions to address the challenges in integrating hydrogen into whole energy systems will also be supported

UK researchers invited to partner with US on nuclear energy

A share of £2.5m of funding is available for topics including molten salts, light-water reactor fuels and advanced small modular reactors

New £7m research to address effect of offshore wind farms on marine ecosystems

The four-year programme will provide evidence to inform marine policy and management as the offshore wind sector ramps up to deliver 40GW of capacity by 2030

US awards $24m for direct air carbon capture research

The projects are expected to support breakthroughs in understanding how to overcome the limitations of technologies that are currently available, including inefficient energy usage

Australia commits $25.6m for microgrid feasibility research

The studies will investigate whether establishing a microgrid or upgrading existing off-grid technologies would better meet the energy needs of regional and remote communities

UK launches £5m programme for climate resilience research

The four-year research programme will help inform future climate policy and ensure Britain can respond to the impacts of a warming planet on national infrastructure
