Portland assists in the drive to Net Zero

Portland assists in the drive to Net Zero

In October 2020, Portland’s Ian Cogswell participated in a workshop entitled Working Back from Net Zero.  The “Financing Net Zero” group that met during the workshop has continued to meet and formed a network, FTech2Zero, a multiorganizational network of industry experts, who have been drawn together to develop a white paper recognizing the challenges associated with financing and deploying novel technology, raising awareness, and assessing the solutions that can be adapted by both financial institutions and technology providers alike.

With less than 30 years to deliver the UK’s Net Zero ambitions it is critical to focus on measures to accelerate deployment of the technologies which are necessary to deliver net zero goals. Current estimates state that the required investment to create an integrated energy system on the UKCS alone requires investment of approximately £430 billion. It is therefore imperative that any initiative is attractive to a broad range of financial investors.

FTech2Zero has produced a survey to collect voices from the entire energy value chain to help broaden our understanding of what is needed to truly move the dial on financing net zero. The group would greatly appreciate your input on this topic via this 10-minute survey. With this survey, we are trying to collect voices from the entire energy value chain to help broaden our understanding of what is needed to truly move the dial on net zero financing.

You can also join us at the forthcoming virtual roundtable, Financing Technology to Net Zero on 7th April to discuss the survey as we form a better understanding of the current state of investment in novel technologies, as well as how companies are reacting to this transformational issue.
