Thursday and Friday 15-16 April 2021


Online Zoom Conference

The Transition to NET-ZERO in the North of England

How can the North transition to a net-zero economy by itself, and how can net-zero technologies create jobs in the North?

This event is aimed at showing members of the public, policy makers and an academic audience what is on offer, what can be done and what is being done, here in the North.

The North of England has fantastic resources which can contribute to the UKs net-zero ambitions.  This conference will showcase the exciting innovations and demonstrators the region has already developed and the opportunities that the Net-Zero Transition presents for creating green jobs and levelling-up regional inequalities. The history of mining in the North of England, and its role as an engine of growth in the Industrial revolution, is now the foundation for a new low-carbon era with exciting Northern innovations and developments in offshore wind, hydrogen, CCS, and geothermal energy. 

Keynote speech by the Rt Honourable Anne-Marie Trevelyan MP, Minister of State for Business, Energy and Clean Growth & UK International Champion on Adaptation and Resilience for the COP26 Presidency.

DEI were one of the first energy centres to focus on building true interdisciplinary research - not just between Engineers and Economists but also with Anthropologists, Geographers, Physicists, Chemists, Biologists, Philosophers, Law researchers etc. We emphasise a 'Science and Society' approach to energy which integrates social, policy and technical insights to produce world-leading research on decarbonisation.

The Mining Institute is the Royal Chartered membership organisation for science and technology in the North. Founded in 1852 by the most important contemporary Northern scientists and engineers.  NEIMME hold regular talks and events on all aspects of science and technology.
