Net-Zero Accelerators: Renewables and cleantech up next in edie’s miniseries of reports

The report is free to download for edie users

The SPARK! Net-Zero Action Workshops event is the flagship annual gathering for edie’s Net-Zero Leaders Club, which sparks new ideas and actions on the road to net-zero carbon emissions. Hosted as part of edie’s Net-Zero November campaign of content and events, this full-day event created the time and space for energy and sustainability changemakers to connect, collaborate and seize the moment of net-zero.

Throughout the day, experts representing a range of sectors took part in high-level roundtables, each covering a different element of the energy transition for businesses. The key takeaways have been summarised in a miniseries of short, free-to-download reports. The first report was published by edie last week and focuses on net-zero business strategies and innovation.

The second in the series focuses on renewables. From rooftop solar and large-scale PPA agreements through to battery storage and distributed generation – renewable energy systems and clean technologies represent a crucial enabler of the net-zero transition. So, what needs to happen to accelerate change and make this clean, flexible energy future a reality in 2022?

This mini-report, published in assistance with Bryt Energy looks to answer that question and also features an expert viewpoint from the company’s sales and marketing director David Taylor.


A panel of experts in the energy transition also spoke at the SPARK! Net-Zero Action Workshops in Birmingham last November.

The panel was asked what was top of their remaining UK policy wishlist after COP26- and the flurry of Strategy publications and funding announcements that came in the weeks and months leading up to the climate summit. These included the Hydrogen StrategyHeat and Buildings Strategy and overarching Net-Zero Strategy.
