When UK announced its intent to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, it became the first major country to make the net zero commitment. On this podcast episode, you will hear about the work done by UK Fires, a research group sponsored by the UK government to support it in its transition towards the net zero goal.
Dr André Cabrera Serrenho (University of Cambridge & UK Fires) joins to talk about the findings from the report.
Listen to the high level analysis to understand the trajectories for different sectors to decarbonise, why is it easy to decarbonise the steel sector in comparison to cement and why will aviation and shipping be the last and pose a major challenge for reaching the net zero goals.
About Dr André Cabrera Serrenho
Dr André Cabrera Serrenho is exploring new ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions at a faster pace to meet international climate pledges. This involves identifying new configurations of energy and material systems to supply our future needs with less demand and emissions. André has been working on the identification of opportunities for energy and material demand reduction in industrial systems. He developed dynamic material flow analyses to assess the stocks of cars and buildings in the UK, testing the impact of alternative interventions to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
