Commenting on the launch of the UK Government’s Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy announced today (17 March) OGUK’s Sustainability Director, Mike Tholen said:

“Many of our members are already active in decarbonisation projects and committed to bringing carbon capture and storage, hydrogen and offshore floating wind projects to life across the UK. This industrial decarbonisation strategy will help accelerate progress in net-zero incubator projects as well as enabling our world-class supply chain to develop new low carbon solutions.

“Around the UK, our members are involved in industrial clusters of low carbon projects including Net-Zero Teesside, Peterhead’s Acorn Carbon Capture and Storage, Offshore Wind on Dogger Bank and Hywind in the North Sea to help deliver the UK’s net zero ambitions. In the future, their essential expertise in developing cleaner energy systems will be in great demand as other countries around the world seek to address the challenge of climate change.”
