Two UK-based energy technology research organisations have agreed a new five-year collaboration to accelerate the UK’s transition to a net zero carbon economy and create thousands of green jobs.

The new Energy Transition Alliance (ETA) has been formed by the Aberdeen-based Oil & Gas Technology Centre (OGTC) and the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult.

It will be funded in its first year by the OGTC and ORE Catapult and will then look to government and industry to secure funding in future years.
