Implementing Net Zero Carbon in Practice
To achieve an international ‘safe’ level of global warming, the world and UK must reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
In the UK, net zero carbon is a statutory target set by the Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019 for a 100% reduction of UK greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 (compared with 1990 levels).
This course explores how a net zero carbon future can be achieved by using engineering, management and behaviour change solutions.
The course includes units on carbon footprinting, decarbonised utility supplies (electricity and heat), decarbonised transport, the decarbonisation of buildings, carbon and energy management systems, stakeholder awareness and concludes with some useful case studies.
