This theme will explore future industry decarbonisation strategies, through detailed analyses of technologies, product outputs, and trade patterns. Building on previous research, the theme takes a whole-systems approach to industrial energy use that goes beyond the major energy intensive sectors. It will explore how the availability of future infrastructure – such as hydrogen networks or carbon dioxide pipelines – could impact the cost of emissions reduction pathways for key industrial sectors.
