Policy priorities for Industrial Decarbonisation

The Policy Team is working with IDRIC’s industry and academic partners, trade associations and policy makers from the UK Government and the Devolved Administrations, to identify and develop key priority areas where policy and regulatory action can help to accelerate industrial decarbonisation.

Key priority areas we will focus on include:

  • Business models for scaling up low carbon technologies
  • Enabling fuel switching and electrification
  • Creating the supporting infrastructure for transport and storage
  • Timely planning, consenting and permitting processes
  • Comprehensive carbon accounting and standards
  • Resilient low-carbon supply chains
  • Develop strong supply chains
  • Net zero skills and workforce

We will publish the outcomes of our stakeholder discussions and research in these areas in an Interim Policy Report this winter and will further develop policy and regulatory considerations through a series of thematic policy roundtables over the next 6 months.
