Launch - Connecting the Watts: The Case for a Net Zero Delivery Authority

13:30 - 15:00

Carbon Connect's latest report presents the findings of cross-party inquiry chaired by Darren Jones MP, Wera Hobhouse MP and Alexander Stafford MP.

Connecting the Watts sets out how a net zero delivery authority can help the UK to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Across heating, power, transport and industry, this report outlines key recommendations for government on how to create the governance, skills and standards, public engagement and business models required by the UK's target.

The launch will take place 10 December, 13:30 - 15:00 via Zoom. We will hear from the inquiry chairs and steering group on topical issues raised during the inquiry, as well as from Policy Connect on the main findings and recommendations.
