In the UK’s race to Net Zero it must decarbonise industry to achieve its target of net zero emissions by 2050.
The East Coast Cluster is a cluster of industrial, power and hydrogen businesses aiming to decarbonise their operations using carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS) in the North Sea.
The cluster is a collaboration between Net Zero Teesside, the Northern Endurance Partnership, and Zero Carbon Humber, and stands ready to remove almost 50% of the UK’s total industrial cluster emissions.
A diverse mix of low-carbon projects are now being taken forward, including industrial carbon capture, low-carbon hydrogen production, negative emissions power, and power with carbon capture.
From 2030, at least 20 million tonnes of CO2 each year will be transported to safe, secure offshore storage – equivalent to the emissions associated with the annual energy use of around six million homes in the UK.
The East Coast Cluster represents the UK’s biggest opportunity to:
It’s also set to create over 25,000 direct and indirect jobs each year, peaking at around 41,000 jobs in 2026.
