Net Zero

Creating the world’s first Net Zero industrial cluster by 2040

Ground Zero for Net Zero

The Tees Valley has huge ambitions – to become the world’s first Net Zero industrial cluster by 2040. Being home to one of the biggest industrial clusters in Europe, it is an obvious location to lead the UK’s net zero ambitions.

At the heart of Teesside’s industrial zone is Teesworks, the heart of the UK’s largest freeport – the Teesside Freeport – unrivalled in size, scale and opportunity it is a diverse, multi-sector setting, bringing together industry leaders to power Britain’s carbon capture capital.

There are a number of nationally significant and game-changing projects already earmarked for development across the Tees Valley, with many already under way creating the jobs for the future.

What the Cluster Offers

The Tees Valley presents a ready-made and cost-effective cluster which can achieve long-term decarbonisation at affordable cost. It is geographically and industrially suited for large-scale decarbonisation, it is also home to Teesworks, the UK’s largest Freeport, and Net Zero Teesside, the UK’s premier net zero project.

The region produces more than 50% of the UK’s hydrogen, and is home to the UK’s first Hydrogen Transport Hub, as well as two huge “blue” hydrogen project, bp’s H2Teesside and Kellas’ H2NorthEast, as well as Protium’s flagship green hydrogen project. It has the world’s largest biomass power plant, and the UK’s first Net Zero power plant.

Multimillon-pound investments in a new deep-water quay to service the offshore wind industry and SeAH Wind’s £450million offshore manufacturing facility, as well as investment to create the Teesworks Offshore Manufacturing Centre round off the region’s extensive cluster.
