Using technology-enabled change to support the energy and environment sector
The need to decarbonise our economy, whilst monitoring and adapting to climate change, is driving huge transformation in all sectors.
The UK government is committed to reducing our impact on the environment and transforming our energy system to make it cleaner and more affordable, through the Clean Growth Strategy and the 25 Year Environment Plan, as well as collaborating and supporting other countries to reduce their impacts. Our greenhouse gas emission reduction targets are among the most ambitious globally and the next few years will see record investment in clean growth innovation.
NPL is helping to meet these targets and support world-leading innovation in the UK and internationally. Our work is driving down the cost of renewables and low-carbon technology, and increasing our understanding of emissions and pollution. We apply the latest advances in measurement to make every stage of energy generation and transport more efficient, safe and affordable, and to improve the quality of data available on climate change and environmental pollution.
