Rapid Decarbonisation Projects
Energy Systems Catapult is here to help innovative businesses to tackle the most difficult challenges facing the energy sector, as the UK moves to a Net Zero economy.
Pineapple partnered with the ESC to help to identify systemic innovation priorities as the UK transitions to Net Zero, enabling innovators to transition in a way that delivers balanced social, environmental and economic value.
Net Zero Social Housing
A pilot project to work at scale to change the dynamics of the Social Housing Retrofit market.
The hypothesis is for a 5 year plan for a 10,000 home annual delivery and then be scaled up and delivered for longer. The project looks to improve CO2 emissions and improve well-being and mortality in vulnerable people.
Pineapple is collaborating with a diverse group of businesses who are interested in enabling a climate transition for all areas concerning a retrofitted house such as energy provision, tenant and landlord experience, stock inventory and cost financing.
Net Zero Supply Chain
With the rise of organisations adopting Science Based Targets to reduce climate change, there is an increasing focus on businesses’ supply chain engagement to become Net Zero and reducing emissions in line with policies and targets to not increase global warming temperatures more than 1.5 and 2 degrees Celsius.
This leave challenges to address such as:
Data and engagement
Governance and decision making
Business models to engage
Solutions to deliver value
Engagement sensitive to balancing environmental, social and commercial implications of any action
