Mott MacDonald led consortium appointed to BEIS Net Zero Innovation Portfolio, UK

Mott MacDonald is leading a consortium appointed by the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to provide technical advisory services for its £1bn Net Zero Innovation Portfolio through the Technical Third Party Support project.

The Net Zero Innovation Portfolio is a £1bn fund, announced in the Prime Minister’s ten point plan for a green industrial revolution, which aims to accelerate the development and commercialisation of new low carbon technologies, systems and processes, helping the government to decrease the cost of decarbonisation and stimulate private sector investment.

Bringing together private sector technical knowledge and world-class research and development expertise, our consortium will support with programme development, programme management, bid assessment and project monitoring for long duration energy storage; industry and carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS, including biomass conversion); greenhouse gas removal; hydrogen and fuel switching; systems, networks and integration; energy markets and regulatory expertise; and manufacturing expertise. Each theme is structured with several programmes and individual projects to deliver the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio ambition.

Mott MacDonald is supported on the programme by key consortium partners Ricardo Energy, The Carbon Trust, Energy Systems Catapult, Element Energy, E4tech and EXETI. The wider consortium includes 16 organisations in total, with seven small to medium enterprises and two universities, bringing together in-depth specialist knowledge.

The Technical Third Party Support project replaces the successful £505M Energy Innovation Support Programme that Mott MacDonald has been delivering for BEIS since 2018 and which comes to an end in early 2022.

Dr Adina Popa, Mott MacDonald’s programme director with overall responsibility for the delivery of consultancy services on the programme, said: “I’m delighted that our team will be supporting BEIS on this critically important Net Zero Innovation Portfolio. We’re looking forward to continuing to work closely with BEIS on the ambitious challenges posed by the energy transition to a low carbon economy and helping the UK to achieve its net zero targets by 2050. The programme provides an opportunity for Mott MacDonald and our partners to remain at the forefront of energy technology innovation for years to come, while helping the UK Government to become a global hub for innovation, and to build back better, greener and faster, which is a very exciting prospect.”

The project will complete by March 2025.
