The Centre for Low Carbon Futures has prepared a report for the Trades Union Congress (TUC) and the Energy Intensive Users Group (EIUG) to consider the innovative low carbon technology solutions needed for key energy intensive sectors. UK companies producing steel, cement, ceramics, glass, aluminium and chemicals are vital to the UK economy, but face serious risks as a result of rising energy costs and the report reflects the aligned interests between employers, unions and the government to support the transition of these key industries to a low carbon economy. The study took first-hand evidence from industry to assess the innovative low carbon technology solutions needed for the UK's key energy intensive sectors. Potential technology options, barriers to low carbon investment and the need for policy support and technical co-operation were examined sector by sector. The full report can be found via the link below:
