Scottish Net Zero Roadmap Phase 2
The Scottish Net Zero Roadmap (SNZR) project is part of a Government funded challenge to develop net zero industrial clusters by 2040.
The aim is to develop a road map to show how the industrial cluster along Scotland’s East Coast can be decarbonised. It is currently emitting some 9.3 million tonnes of CO2 p.a. – This is around 80% of Scotland’s industrial emissions.
A number of scenarios will be explored to establish a series of clearly defined pathways to net zero for the range of industrial sites within the Scottish industrial cluster. The project will also investigate the infrastructure (renewables, hydrogen, carbon capture) which will be necessary to deliver this and analyse the policy levers which can be used to support industrial decarbonisation.
The SNZR project is working to bring stakeholders from across the cluster region together in order to help drive a just transition and ensure a prosperous future for Scotland.
Various modelling scenarios will be completed and then compared to provide a strong vision for the path that Scottish industry can take. This will produce a dynamic source of live information that can be used in many future decision making scenarios.
The SNZR project will additionally support the delivery of the Clean Growth Grand Challenge as well as the Industrial Clusters Mission. The UK Government has a stated ambition to establish the world’s first net zero carbon industrial cluster by 2040, with at least one low-carbon industrial cluster by 2030.
