The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science & Technology in Japan and the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at The British University in Egypt join existing contributors from the UK, Netherlands, USA, Australia, Canada, and Brazil, to make this a truly global collaboration across five continents. Each organisation will contribute to the ‘Closing the Gap: A Global Perspective’ study, offering their unique perspective on the energy transition and the journey to creating integrated energy systems.
Working together, the technology and research organisations will identify technology gaps and innovation priorities to accelerate an integrated net zero energy future, looking at technologies such as blue and green hydrogen, offshore wind, oil and gas electrification, direct air capture and carbon capture, utilisation and storage.
“We are excited to have Japan’s National Institute for Advanced Industrial Science & Technology and the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at the British University in Egypt onboard” said Luca Corradi, Innovation Network Director at the Net Zero Technology Centre. “They both have a history of innovation and international collaboration, which will help provide a well-rounded view of the global energy system. Participating in the study is a massive opportunity for all partners to collaborate and identify the key technologies to enable the transition. The outcomes of the study will help inform national governments at COP27, where all countries must re-evaluate their Nationally Determined Contributions and deliver on previous commitments.”
The Organisations contributing to the collaborative study are: Net Zero Technology Centre (UK); TNO (The Netherlands), National Renewable Energy Laboratory (USA), Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Australia) and National Energy Resources Australia (Australia), InnoTech Alberta (Canada), Energy Research & Innovation Newfoundland & Labrador (Canada), Research Centre for Greenhouse Gas Innovation (Brazil), the Industrial Decarbonisation Research & Innovation Centre (UK), Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (UK), The National Institute for Advanced Industrial Science & Technology (Japan) and the Faculty of Energy and Environmental Engineering at the British University in Egypt.
