Let us know if you are interested in joining us in person on Friday 30th September in Cambridge. The timing of the day will be from around 9.30-17.00.
The plan for the day is to use the input from the UK FIRES Annual Forum on 19th July 2022 and present the draft update to our report “Entrepreneurs not Emissions” and review it together before publishing.
Complete the form below to register your interest and we will get in touch with further details.
UK FIRES is the leading activity exploring the delivery of UK climate mitigation targets without relying on negative emissions technologies or implausible growth rates in electricity supply. In our first, high-impact report, “Absolute Zero” we predicted that by 2050, the UK will have half the electricity it wants, but that we could live well with zero emissions by using it wisely. We’ve since worked with the UK’s Catapult Centres to reveal specific sectoral innovation opportunities compatible with Absolute Zero and the report of our first Annual Forum in 2021, “Entrepreneurs not Emissions,” details 140 commercial innovation proposals.
In our second Annual Forum in 2022 we explored how these innovations can move rapidly from start-up to national scale. For example, we know that we need a new “IKEA of Retrofit” to deliver a million domestic retrofits every year from now to 2050. Who can do what to whom to accelerate the initiation and growth of this business?
