UK – India Innovation for Net Zero: Exploring place-based bilateral partnerships
International collaboration can boost the power of places to deliver on net zero goals. A new partnership between the UK and India which involves Connected Places Catapult is hoping to achieve just that.
Case Study
ASEAN Smart Cities Spark an Electric Bus Revolution
Electrifying public bus fleets is a net zero action that many cities have in their power to take now – but the instability of the grid in these districts can cause delays in implementing chargers. To address this in Jakarta and Singapore, innovation districts involving local residents and businesses grew from what was, at first, a single-depot public sector project.
Preparing UK airports for zero emission aircraft
The UK Government is investing in the infrastructure upgrades required at UK airports to move to battery and hydrogen-powered aircraft. As part of this we are delivering the Zero Emission Flight Infrastructure (ZEFI) programme in collaboration with the Department for Transport.
Carbon Accounting
Representatives from the Catapult Network are working with Government, academia and standards bodies to develop a robust, comprehensive framework to accurately measure greenhouse gas emissions of UK manufactured products, that will accelerate industrial emission reduction and position the UK as the place for green manufacturing.
Clean Tyne Shipping Corridor
The project will develop a roadmap for a green shipping corridor from the North East to support the maritime sector’s transition to net zero.
