The UK government has awarded six groups seed funding for planned decarbonisation projects in Scotland, England and Wales that aim to help the UK meet its net zero target by 2050.

In addition, the government has granted seed funds to another six groups to pull together road maps on how decarbonisaton can be achieved.

Two of the decarbonising projects receiving financial support from the Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge Fund are in Scotland, which has a separate goal of achieving net zero by 2045.
