As we move towards the objective of achieving net-zero by 2050, the need to decarbonise heat will be vital. ERA is working on the development of a National Centre for the Decarbonisation of Hear. This webinar, taking place on 1st July, will look at:

Why we need a National Centre for Decarbonising Heat
What are the challenges we need to address?
What are the latest technologies that can be used for decarbonisation?
How can businesses, government and universities work together to decarbonise heat?

This webinar is being led by Professor Martin Freer, Director of the Energy Research Accelerator. Martin will be joined by academics from across the ERA network, along with experts from industry and the public sector. the full programme is listed below, book your place now.
