We’re here to work with others to deliver reach and put our tools to positive effect. We want to help governments hit climate targets by providing decision-makers with insightful, rigorous research relating to the energy transition that they’re not getting elsewhere. The scale of the climate challenge means that we can’t do this alone – by working with partners, we are able to extend our reach and multiply the impact of others.
Our partnerships at Centre for Net Zero will:
• Help people find, interpret and act on our research
• Co-promote a vision for a net zero future
We’re interested in partnering with others on everything from research projects, joint white papers and real world demonstrators to coordinated events and educational content.
We’ll do this:
• Bilaterally through co-authored papers and reports, joint manifestos and memoranda of understanding
• In response to opportunities from local or national government, from fora to invitations to tender
• By co-creating collaboration opportunities with international and non-governmental organisations
Whether you’re from the energy industry, the tech sector, academia, a non-profit or otherwise, we want to hear from you.
We’re especially interested in:
• Whole electricity systems modellers who want to better understand wider system impacts and costs
• Other agent-based modellers focused on the energy transition with collaboration ambitions
• Behavioural scientists with expertise in how people and organisations act in the energy transition
• Energy companies / data owners in the developed and developing world
• Tech companies that want to use our model
• Anyone interested in working with or extending our models, from researchers to authorities
• We are building the world’s most comprehensive, openly accessible ABM of the energy transition, simulating the behaviour of households within a people-centred transition.
• Consumption and ‘agile’ tariff data, for research purposes agreed with customers of Octopus Energy – a pioneer in offering agile tariffs to smart-meter owners
• Insight into ownership of tech by householders, from electric vehicles and solar panels to new-school batteries
