Oxford researchers to contribute to Pioneering Places study on Oxford’s transition to Net Zero
University of Oxford researchers will work with a range of local partners on a feasibility study aimed at improving our understanding of systemic changes required to accelerate the preparation of Oxford’s homes for a zero-carbon energy system.
Oxford has been recognised as a Net Zero leader in combatting climate change by Innovate UK’s national Pioneering Places initiative, having been awarded £75,000 feasibility funding for a multi-sector energy systems study. The grant will fund a two month investigation into how Oxford can take its next steps towards achieving Net Zero, by addressing specific challenges for the commercial, industrial, and domestic sectors. It will look at issues around power, heat, mobility, product manufacturing and energy consumption.
