Event description
As we count down to COP26, join BGS scientists and learn how our research is providing geoscientific solutions in the transition to net zero

About this event

The annual United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) will be hosted in Glasgow in November 2021. The aim is clear: to reach net zero by 2050, ensuring that the amount of carbon we add to the atmosphere is no more than the amount we remove.

Securing global net zero by mid-century is the primary goal of COP26. Through its presidency of the conference in November, the UK is urging countries and companies around the world to share its aim of delivering sustainable growth and a net zero carbon emission economy by 2050. At the heart of the technical challenge, set out in the UK Government’s Energy White Paper, is how to decarbonise power, industry, transport, and the heating and cooling of buildings.

At BGS, we believe the subsurface has a vital role to play in meeting this challenge.

  • Why are heat networks crucial in the adoption of geothermal energy?
  • How can underground observatories support cost reduction and de-risking?
  • What role can hydrogen play in the energy transition?
  • Why is understanding our glacial past so important for wind energy in the future?
