Cut Carbon is a major £5m investment in decarbonising transport by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
Five Decarbonising Transport Networks have been funded to bring together expertise from across academia and industry. These networks aim to lay the groundwork for the use of low carbon technologies across road, rail, marine and air. Each network has its own specialist focus. Together they cover a wide range including lower carbon air travel, smart vehicle to grid connectivity, and decarbonising freight transport.
The Cut Carbon initiative acts as an information hub for the five networks recognising the need for a whole system approach to rapid decarbonisation. Here you can find out about events, funding calls and key network deliverables across all of the networks. Cut Carbon will share syntheses of the latest understandings of decarbonisation solutions. It will also help connect industry, government and academia and signpost to the more in-depth studies on-going in each of the networks.
