Scotland's Net Zero Roadmap

Project funder

UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund

Project timeframe

January 2021 - December 2022


The ambitious SNZR project, led by the industrial carbon capture and storage alliance, NECCUS, will analyse Scottish industrial emissions and investigate routes to decarbonising large sections of Scotland’s industry. The work forms part of a drive to create the world’s first net-zero emissions industrial zone by 2040 and is the latest phase of the UK’s £170m Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge.

The Centre for Energy Policy will be joining nine industrial partners and the University of Edinburgh in the project. The Centre’s involvement will focus on understanding the public policy challenges of decarbonising industry, and will be crucial to understanding the long-term competitiveness and sustainability of these industries and how they can contribute to a prosperous and sustainable economy and society.
