Emissions Reduction of Heavy Lifting Equipment at Ports
Shipping, ports and logistics is a critical part of international import and export markets and supports the global distribution of goods. Concerns and legislative requirements about climate change and local air quality impacts require the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from the shipping and ports sector. It means that the industry must prepare for the new future. ABP is the UK's leading port operator with a network of 21 ports across Britain ABP handles around one-quarter of the nation's seaborne trade, contributing £7.5 billion to the economy every year and supporting 119,000 jobs. ABP also operates one of the UK's busiest rail terminals at Hams Hall in the Midlands. Whilst new equipment is being replaced by greener options; the challenge is to improve and update equipment that has a long ROI.

Changing human behaviours to combat climate change
If the UK is to meet its target of net zero emissions by 2050, then human behaviours will have to change. The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) is working with ENGIE to identify innovative solutions that will help to instigate, facilitate and sustain these changes. Behavioural change is required at both an individual and organisational level and ENGIE is interested in solutions that seek to change behaviour in ways that support the rapid transition to zero carbon. ENGIE is committed to be the global leader in the zero carbon transition and has a strong track record of deploying innovative, low carbon solutions across the Energy, Services and Regeneration sectors. Through this challenge ENGIE is looking to identify UK SMEs that it will invite to apply for funding under Round 4 of the ENGIE UKRI Clean Growth Innovation Fund. Only companies that are successful under this KTN iX challenge will be eligible for funding under Round 4.
