Could industrial clusters become the heart of the green revolution?

An interesting development that could have a high impact on industrial decarbonization – and one that India should take note of.

The UK’s Zero Carbon Humber project aims to create the a world’s first net-zero industrial cluster. It will use carbon capture and storage, renewable energy and hydrogen to decarbonize heavy industries in the region. – https://lnkd.in/gsd_utA

While both hydrogen and carbon capture are in their nascent stages of development, and may not live up to expectations, a focus on industrial clusters is a damn good way to kickstart these efforts.

Industrial clusters have an ecosystem that is unique – you can feel it in the air if you have been anywhere near them. The proximity of companies, projects and decision makers result in a canvas on which things move fast. And if the cluster happens to consist of highly related companies, even better.

Our own Bureau of Energy Efficiency has achieved some excellent results in the past decade by focussing on India’s industrial clusters, though mainly with energy efficiency as the goal. It would be worth expanding the scope to other clean energy efforts too,
