A raft of industrial firms have been granted £8m to produce detailed decarbonisation roadmaps setting out how they could leverage clean energy technologies to slash emissions over the coming decade, as part of the government’s ambition to establish the “world’s first” net zero industrial hub in the UK by 2040. Projects in the West Midlands, Tees Valley, North West, Humber, Scotland and South Wales are set to receive a share of the funding announced on Saturday, spearheaded by six regional consortiums comprised of industry, local authorities and public bodies. The public-private consortiums behind the six projects receiving the latest funding are expected to embrace a range of solutions and technologies in their plans, including scaling hydrogen production to help shift heavy industry away from fossil fuels, carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology to prevent emissions from polluting the atmosphere, and greater use of renewable energy.
