See IGEM’s latest policy response to the Hydrogen Taskforce’s publication named The Role of Hydrogen in Delivering Net Zero, and ADBA's publication named Biomethane: The Pathway to 2030 and what they mean for immediate policy support across the sector.
This year’s Review of Energy Policy focuses on seven themes that form the backbone of UKERC’s research programme for the next five years. The Review sets out some of the challenges the next government will face and makes specific recommendations about future policy priorities.
The report recognises a number of key requirements in ‘preparing for the transition’ and outlines the low-regret actions for policy makers and stakeholders to support now.
A new IGEM-sponsored report has called for an urgent Green Heat Roadmap by 2020 to scale low carbon heating technologies and help Britain’s homeowners access the help they need to take smarter, greener choices on heating their homes.
This is the first joint publication by the National Engineering Policy Centre, an ambitious new partnership between IGEM and 38 UK engineering organisations, led by the Royal Academy of Engineering. The report calls on government to work with the sector to invest in skills, innovation, digital and traditional infrastructure, and clean energy technologies.
This report follows the Committee’s inquiry examining the Government’s commitment to deploying CCUS technology and whether it has a “plan b” to meet the UK’s climate change targets should the desired cost reductions not materialise.
This report contains the key finding that hydrogen will play a substantial role in the long term progression to a decarbonised power, heat and transport system. However, the CCC envisages much more energy efficient homes with heat pumps that use electricity to draw heat from the ground or air, running alongside gas boilers.
