The Net Zero Technology Centre is a delivery-oriented global technology centre with net zero at its core. Their purpose is to develop and deploy technology for an affordable net zero energy industry.
The centre aims to accelerate the energy transition by closing the gap in net zero technologies that will reduce emissions from existing facilities, unlock the full potential of an integrated energy system, propel the energy industry towards a digital, automated future and champion clean energy start-ups to build a thriving supply chain.
Established in 2017, so far the Centre has co-invested £176 million in technologies which have the potential to generate £10-15 billion in gross value added (GVA) to the Scottish economy. They have screened over 1280 technologies, completed 64 field trials, with a further 49 planned or already live and have progressed more than 23 technologies to commercialisation.
