Digitalisation for Net Zero

Digitalisation for Net Zero assesses the potential of digital technology to transform the energy system, including real-world case studies being developed by UK innovators.
As part of the Innovating to Net Zero programme, Energy Systems Catapult has carried out a number of deep dives into the technologies potentially needed to achieve our 2050 emissions targets – such as nuclear, storage and flexibility.

We have undertaken whole systems modelling to explore the optimal energy system design changes as individual technologies develop on potential pathways to Net Zero. Different technologies, including the cost and performance trajectories for these to be commercially competitive, are evaluated with a whole systems perspective. This includes deep dives into particular energy technologies and an evaluation of how markets, policy and regulation could develop to better support innovation in these areas.
