A Network for Heating and Cooling Research to Enable a Net-Zero Carbon Future (H+C Zero Network)
Decarbonising both heating and cooling across residential, business and industry sectors is fundamental to delivering the recently announced net-zero greenhouse gas emissions targets. Such a monumental change to this sector can only be delivered through the collective advancement of science, engineering and technology combined with prudent planning, demand management and effective policy.
The H+C Zero Network will facilitate the advancement of decarbonisation of heating and cooling internationally through funded workshops, conferences and secondments which in combination will enable researchers, technology developers, managers, policymakers and funders to come together to share their progress, new knowledge and experiences. It will also directly impact on this through a series of research funding calls which will offer seed funding to address key technical, economic, social, environmental and policy challenges.
It is led by Durham Energy Institute and formed by a research partnership between Durham University, Oxford University, Brunel University London, Heriot-Watt University, University of Leeds and Northumbria University.
This is underpinned by our wider stakeholder group of international partners:
