Industry represents ~40% of global energy consumption and achieving deep decarbonisation of heavy industries, such as iron and steel, cement and chemicals, requires a range of innovative technological solutions from circular economy approaches to fuel-switching to CCUS. Accelerating the commercialisation of such solutions is both a challenge and an opportunity, and the presentation will cover examples of what the UK is doing both domestically and internationally (through international climate finance) to support countries in Asia-Pacific to decarbonise industry.
