Climate Neutral Innovation District: Glasgow City Innovation District Experience
Glasgow City Innovation District is a hub for entrepreneurship, innovation, and collaboration. It builds on Scotland’s rich tradition of scientific excellence and industrial collaboration. Bringing together ambitious, forward-thinking people, the District is tackling societal and global challenges and driving inclusive economic growth.
Located in the heart of Glasgow City Centre, the District is home to many innovative companies and organisations who’ve located here to nurture and accelerate growth, improve productivity, and access world-class research and technology from the University.
As part of the development of Glasgow City Innovation District, the University of Strathclyde is leading an ambitious project to a 100% renewable climate neutral and climate resilient area within the district. The project, leading by Dr Roddy Yarr form the University of Strathclyde, aims to integrate heat, power, transport, climate adaptation and wellbeing solutions that will benefit everyone in the area of the Innovation District.
During the conference local experts share more about this ambitious project and how the city will utilise a ‘whole systems’ approach to enable a large-scale transition to a more sustainable and climate ready Innovation District.
