The Net Zero technology Centre’s role is to develop and deploy technology for an affordable net zero energy industry. Co-investing with industry and working in partnership with the public and private sectors, we are funding R&D, driving investment, building a clean energy eco-system, and influencing policy to accelerate the transition and close the gap on net zero technologies.

We are working cross-sector and internationally to tackle the most complex and most critical technology challenges; commercialising game-changing innovations, helping developers secure field trials, and accelerating those tech start-ups with the most promising clean energy solutions.

Already supporting the oil and gas industry to diversify, decarbonise and digitise, we are well on our way to developing the next generation of technology solutions – solutions that address real-world challenges across a range of sectors from renewables to manufacturing all to accelerate our integrated energy future.

The NSTA regulates and influences the oil, gas and carbon storage industries. We help drive North Sea energy transition, realising the significant potential of the UK Continental Shelf as a critical energy and carbon abatement resource. We hold industry to account on halving upstream emissions by 2030. We work with government, industry and other regulators to accelerate the move to net zero while meeting the UK’s energy demand and security. We perform an effective net zero test and will not approve developments unless they pass it. We aim to be a value creator in everything we do, encouraging and enabling economic benefit and job creation across the UK. We drive greater efficiency through inclusive leadership, data, analysis, stewardship and the use of our powers.
