UCL Joins Net Zero Tech Alliance as a Founding Member

IoT Tribe has announced today that University College London (UCL) Faculty of Engineering Science is joining the Net Zero Tech Alliance as a Founding Member.

The Net Zero Tech Alliance provides a platform for organisations committed to net zero to jointly collaborate with other industry stakeholders, academia, R&D organisations, startups, scaleups and SMEs on common net zero challenges, access nascent and disruptive technological solutions, as well as develop technological pilots.

The partnership will see IoT Tribe and UCL Engineering working collaboratively on the design, implementation and evaluation of net zero technologies with members of the alliance.

As a Founding Member in the Net Zero Tech Alliance, UCL Engineering will aim to provide (subject to legally binding collaboration agreement) access to its technical and scientific expertise to help pilot new technologies; training to support the skilling and re-skilling of the employees in member companies; as well as technical expertise for the evaluation of results of the technology pilots, objectively addressing the validity of base-line data and results obtained.

“We are delighted to become a founding member of the Net Zero Tech Alliance and look forward to working with IoT Tribe and the other founding members to facilitate technological solutions in the drive towards a decarbonised future.”

Prof Nigel Titchener-Hooker, Executive Dean, UCL Engineering

“We founded the Net Zero Tech Alliance to help companies deliver on their net zero goals by accessing technology, skills and data in a collaborative manner. Technology is the enabler of progress in net zero pathways and there are solutions that can be deployed here and now to change the status quo. We’re thrilled to welcome UCL as a founding member in the Net Zero Tech Alliance, and believe that their deep knowledge and ground-breaking research & development will be a significant asset to all members.”

The Net Zero Tech Alliance has also already onboarded hundreds of outstanding startups and scaleups as members, including measurable.energy which eliminates wasted energy in buildings and reduces energy bills by at least 20%; QuantCube that harnesses satellite data to create environmental indicators to monitor companies’ impact on environment and physical risks at a very granular level; LSF which has developed the Fast Electrochemical Process as a low emission process that efficiently creates recovered distillate and naphtha from ‘end of life’ hydrocarbon materials; amongst others.

In the coming months, IoT Tribe will be organising a series of high level events titled “Pathways to Net Zero” to drive the engagement of key business, sustainability and technology stakeholders in prospective member companies. The first of the series will be held on 23 November 2022 and will be focused on “Reducing the Impact of Moving People & Goods Through Electrification, E-fuels, Hydrogen & Biofuels”.

About UCL

Founded in 1826 in the heart of London, UCL is London’s leading multidisciplinary university, with more than 13,000 staff and 42,000 students from 150 different countries.

The UCL Engineering Faculty is uniquely international, reflecting UCL’s global outlook.  We work across a broad range of disciplines, but everything we do brings discoveries closer to the people who need them. Proudly part of an open-minded home for arts and sciences, within a global city.

Many essential technologies originated from studies and work at UCL, including the rapid production of vaccines, fibre-optic communications (for which a share of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded) and the Internet infrastructure. The complexity of today’s societies means that engineers deal with an incredible range of challenges, ideas and techniques, turning discoveries into solutions. Whether they are improving medical treatments, houses or transportation, the products, processes and students we produce change the world.
