    Cross party group of parliamentarians call for urgent action on climate change

    Cross party group of parliamentarians call for urgent action on climate change by adapting the 2008 Climate Change Act so it is in line with the Paris Agreement, and pursuing simple, lower cost solutions like solar, onshore wind and increased rates of energy efficiency.

    Carbon Connect and the Sustainability team at Policy Connect hosted the Christmas reception 'Net Zero Britain' on 5th of December. It was set up to allow a cross party group of parliamentarians to discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with reaching net zero emissions in the UK. The event was attended by a wide number of organisations, including industry, academia, trade bodies, parliamentarians, members of the civil service, public bodies and NGOs.

    Carbon Connect launches new inquiry: Future Gas Series Part 3, Consumer and Appliance

    The third and final part of the Future Gas Series will examine downstream issues relating to the role of the consumer in decarbonising gas in the UK.

    This inquiry will explore consumers attitudes towards heat, the acceptability of different decarbonisation methods, how open consumers might be to accepting changes to their homes and places of work, as well as ethical and safety considerations, particularly concerning perceptions around the use of hydrogen as a source of heat and how vulnerable customers can be protected during a transition. The inquiry will also investigate the economic and technical implications of converting or replacing appliances to use low carbon gas, how a large-scale transition might be delivered and how this might be paid for.  Read more

    Carbon Connect releases Future Gas Part 2: MPs say "Build a market for hydrogen to meet climate change targets"

    The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) concluded in their 2018 progress report to parliament that “The current reliance on natural gas is incompatible with long-term decarbonisation. Key strategic decisions will be needed in the early 2020s on low-carbon heat for properties on the gas grid. The main options for these properties are heat pumps and low-carbon hydrogen.”

    Carbon Connect is calling for action to support biogas production for decarbonisation in the near term; develop a market for hydrogen for decarbonisation in the long term; learn lessons from the power sector- deployment can lead to cost reductions and technology improvements.
