Harwell Net Zero Energy Conference

20th January 2022, 1:30 – 3:00 pm

The Science and Technology Facilities Council and Harwell Campus, would be delighted if you can join us as a virtual guest for the Harwell Energy Tech Conference on Thursday 20 January 2022.

Marking the Energy Tech Cluster’s 4th anniversary, which has grown to 80 organisations at the Harwell Campus, and over 100 organisations in its wider network, this conference will bring together a diverse mix of public and private organisations from across the energy, environment, and transportation sectors.

Together, we will reflect on lessons learned from COP26 and discuss the role of the UK supply chain in the scale-up of technologies in meeting the UK’s ambitious net-zero target, and look to how these can contribute globally as well as locally.

The conversation will also consider how the cluster model is driving innovation and inward investment across sectors and regions – supporting the government’s levelling up commitment and building back better and greener.
