Following the UK’s world-leading commitment to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, edie has launched a brand-new series of insight reports which investigate how particular industries can achieve rapid decarbonisation, starting with the utilities sector. “Britain’s utilities sector has a golden opportunity to position itself at the forefront of the net-zero revolution,” states edie’s content director Luke Nicholls in the report introduction. “With the right support and direction, energy and water suppliers large and small can deliver transformative systems that radically reduce carbon whilst enabling and empowering their customers to do the same.” Developed in association with UK Power Networks Services, the report’s content was sourced from a series of in-depth research calls held with a number of in-house sustainability, energy and carbon managers working across energy and water businesses, along with industry body Energy UK.
