Decarbonising the UK’s Freight Transport is a network of over forty academic and industry partners, led by UCL Energy Institute, that will run for three years and operate in three key phases to distil current knowledge and to identify and de-risk the key remaining research challenges that can unleash significant freight-decarbonisation targeted investment and guide enabling policy.

The Network, one of five new transport networks, supported with £5 million of funding from UKRI, will foster a close-knit community focused on unlocking and enabling the next step in UK freight transport decarbonisation. Building on five previous rounds of investment in this area, the network now has £2 million of funding from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and a number of industry partners, including BMT, Lloyds Register, Environmental Defense Fund, Chartered Institute of Logisitics and Transport.

£400,000 has been allocated to feasibility projects to provide a rigorous and independent co-created (industry stakeholders and academia) knowledge and evidence base and accompanying recommendations to accelerate investment. Interested stakeholders are invited to join the network to inform the discussions and guide the research.

The network will look to prepare the wider industry for decarbonisation, commissioning projects that will look at aspects ranging from the use of data to enable investment, to the pathways for moving freight transport’s energy and propulsion technology away from dependence on fossil fuel.
