E4tech helping to accelerate growth of 200 low carbon innovators

E4tech is part of a consortium providing specialist acceleration support to up to 200 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), under the UK government’s £1 billion Net Zero Innovation Portfolio.

E4tech supports global hydrogen partnership to prepare for international hydrogen trade

Large volume international hydrogen trade will be needed in the future to enable the energy transition, however, as the current hydrogen market is nascent there is still confusion about how this will develop.

Another milestone for Western Isles Hub

In 2021, E4tech worked with Frazer Nash to deliver a project for the Western Isles Council (Comhairle nan Eilean Siar), assessing the feasibility of a green hydrogen hub for the Outer Hebrides. We are excited to hear that the council has been awarded pathfinder funding, as part of a £1 million Green Growth Accelerator Programme (GGA), to develop a business case for the hub. E4tech undertook an economic impact assessment which showed the significant benefits that the hub could bring to the Western Isles economy.

UK Electric Vehicle Energy Taskforce recommends multiple solutions for commercial fleet charging

E4tech supported EVET and the Commercial EV Fleet Working Group to develop the newly-launched Commercial EV Fleet Charging Requirements report. The following are some of the key findings:
Both private and public charging solutions are required to support the wide range of all commercial vehicle use cases The greatest barriers to commercial EV fleet charging are where it is out of control of the vehicle operators: on-street, en-route and at destinations Collaboration and co-ordination de-risk investment by fleets and charge point operators, encouraging growth of electrification of transport for all The findings will become recommendations to Government and industry to accelerate the electrification of commercial vehicle fleets.

Study for Dutch Government shows the potential role of synthetic fuel in aviation

Sustainable low carbon aviation fuels are foreseen to play an important role in reducing aviation GHG emissions. Renewable synthetic kerosene can be produced from biomass feedstock and from renewable electricity combined with CO2 (or CO) from a range of sources. E4tech undertook an in depth study to assess the energy, CO2 and cost implications of renewable and low carbon synthetic kerosene production, providing an evidence base to inform policy-making in this area. International and national policies are being developed to reduce aviation GHG emissions, including the Netherlands’ draft Civil Aviation Policy Memorandum 2020-2050 aimed at GHG emissions reduction targets and this study offers insights into the benefits of synthetic routes.
