Climate Neutral Innovation District
Strathclyde is leading an ambitious project to create a 100 per cent renewable, climate neutral and climate resilient area within Glasgow City Innovation District (GCID). The project aims to integrate heat, power, transport, climate adaptation and wellbeing solutions that will benefit everyone in the area of the Innovation District.Our vision
Greenhouse gases in Glasgow’s air to be monitored in real-time
A network of sensors installed across Glasgow schools will monitor levels of the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide (CO2) in the city’s air, which contributes to climate change.
The network of 25 sensors will be installed by scientists from the University of Strathclyde as part of a trial to provide Glasgow City Council, for the first time, with real-time information on emissions of CO2 and various noxious gases in the city’s air.More information

A new chapter for solar power in Malawi
A solar microgrid has been installed in the Dedza district of Malawi, bringing a stable and low carbon electricity provision to a village previously unconnected.
The installation marks the first step in a new social enterprise strategy to provide sustainable energy access to 1 million people over the next 10 years and help achieve Malawi's Sustainable Development Goal targets.More about this project
Informing energy policy
Professor Keith Bell is a member of the Climate Change Committee, the UK’s independent advisor to the government on climate change. A number of researchers at Strathclyde are part of the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) including Professor Bell who was appointed one of UKERC’s Co-Directors in 2014.
The UK and Scottish Governments want to reduce emissions associated with the use of energy. How does it do this through policy?Informing energy policy
Better weather forecasting
There is a strong demand for this new generation of predictions that bridge the gap between weather forecasts and long-range predictions to support climate-resilience and preparedness decision-making.
Strathclyde researcher, Chris White, is co-leading a new applications-focused science sub-project in collaboration with the UK Met Office that will explore the value of sub-seasonal to seasonal (S2S) forecasts and highlighting the opportunities and challenges facing their uptake.Better weather forecasting
Improving ocean & climate literacy
Strathclyde is working to improve education and to facilitate youth and wider citizen participation in decision-making, by developing a ‘cradle-to-grave’ multi-level ocean literacy programme.Improving ocean & climate literacy
