The East Coast Cluster is a collaboration between Zero Carbon Humber, Net Zero Teesside and the Northern Endurance Partnership
We are delighted to hear that one of our fantastic industrial decarbonisation projects in the Humber – the East Coast Cluster – has now been confirmed as one of the UK’s first track 1 clusters, following a successful bid to the department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The East Coast Cluster will now be taken forward into Track-1 negotiations, along with the Hynet decarbonisation project in the North West, with the Scottish Cluster as a reserve.
The East Coast Cluster is a collaboration between Zero Carbon Humber, Net Zero Teesside and the Northern Endurance Partnership, and aims to remove nearly 50% of all UK Industrial cluster CO2 emissions by tackling industry on the Humber and in Teesside.
The Humber Cluster Plan team look forward to working with the East Coast Cluster as their plans progress - and with our other partners – to reverse the tide of CO2 emissions in the Humber, and ultimately to reach net zero for our industry by 2040.
