Creating a low carbon future
The Islands Centre for Net Zero will address the need for fundamental change in how we approach the energy transition across Orkney, Shetland and the Outer Hebrides.
Identify the challenges and opportunities in relation to the energy transition through research, data gathering, baselining and collaboration with people and businesses across the island groups.
Identify and develop lasting low carbon transitions that work and last for both people and environment, including the exploration of innovative technologies and approaches.
Lead the islands towards a just and sustainable future through direct and indirect decarbonisation, while driving economic growth with job creation in new low carbon sectors and supply chains.
