This report investigates the potential for demand-side policy interventions to incentivise the decarbonisation of Scotland’s energy-intensive industries (EIIs). EIIs account for approximately 15% of Scotland's greenhouse gas emissions.
These summary reports, based on focus groups, aim to provide an insight into public perceptions of the Scottish Government’s commitment to reduce car kilometres travelled by 20% by 2030. One focuses on car clubs; the other on what the public believes needs to be in place to achieve this commitment.
This report considers historic efforts of industrial clustering in Scotland, highlighting opportunities and challenges of cluster policy making across both manufacturing and innovation. The research is part of analysing green industrial strategy in Scotland, particularly in relation to the low carbon heat sector.
This evidence review examines whether rebalancing of levies and charges between electricity and gas supplies might impact the deployment of low-carbon and renewable heat in both domestic and non-domestic settings.
Aligning science and policy is a well-known challenge. Scientists and policy-makers often have different goals, priorities and measures of success. CXC’s aim is to bring the two together to create policies and governance informed by the best available evidence.
