A national network led by Durham University to address cross-cutting challenges and develop technology roadmaps.
The Network for Heating and Cooling Research to Enable a Net-Zero Carbon Future (H+C Zero Network) has been established by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to maximise the impact of UK-funded research and innovation.
It is formed by a research partnership between Durham University, Oxford University, Brunel University London, Heriot-Watt University, University of Leeds and Northumbria University.
The network has a focus on the following five themes which are essential for decarbonising heating and cooling:
Theme 1 Primary engineering technologies and systems for decarbonisation
Theme 2 Underpinning technologies, materials, control, retrofit and infrastructure
Theme 3 Future energy systems and economics
Theme 4 Social impact and end users’ perspectives
Theme 5 Policy Support and leadership for the transition to net-zero
