Ten interdisciplinary lessons for industrial decarbonisation practice and policy

IDRIC’s First Research Synthesis Report 

March 2024

This report is the first in a series of research synthesis reports. It draws from a research synthesis following an initial analysis of all available outputs from IDRIC Wave 1 & 2 projects, in Autumn 2023. This led to ten crosscutting findings relevant for net-zero policy and practice. These cover aspects as diverse as energy efficiency, heat integration, hydrogen, diverse energy carriers production and utilisation, CCUS, negative emissions technologies, systems integration, emissions accounting and energy policy and regulation. IDRIC will continue to build on this synthesis activity and disseminate the findings, in future reports.
