UK FIRES: Locating Resource Efficiency at the heart of Future Industrial Strategy in the UK

Lead Research Organisation: University of Cambridge
Department Name: Engineering

Abstract

Resource Efficiency is essential for reducing the environmental impact of manufacturing. Progress in achieving it has been slow, but a rapidly changing international context, including Brexit, is giving new emphasis to Industrial Strategy in the UK which creates a unique window of opportunity. This transformational Programme aims to locate resource efficiency at the heart of a visionary industrial strategy; it will create new world-leading competitive advantage for UK manufacturing by addressing four fundamental barriers to progress:

- to break out of lock-in to resource inefficiency, novel methods and tools will be developed to enumerate and characterise all today's options to design and manufacture material goods;
- to create clarity about the environmental impact of new manufacturing strategies, a ground-breaking Physical Resources Observatory will be developed to access and interpret more and better global resource data;
- to target manufacturing innovations for Resource Efficiency and accelerate their implementation, the features of an effective Innovation Pipeline will be characterised, tested and deployed with a portfolio of promising emerging manufacturing technologies;
- to give new priority to Resource Efficiency in Industrial Strategy, new metrics and decision-framing will be developed and tested in the Living Lab of the Programme's industrial consortium.

The Programme brings together nine internationally-leading academic groups and a consortium of subscribing industrial partners. The management strategy, designed for flexibility, aims to integrate existing methods from diverse disciplines to address the application of Resource Efficiency while stimulating exploration of new methodological opportunities where existing approaches are inadequate. The value of the investment in the Programme will be maximised through an International Advisory Panel to support connections and awareness, a consortium executive committee to determine priorities for strategic analysis, and a supervisory board to ensure financial and legal compliance. The programme will deliver impact via quarterly strategic analysis reports on resource issues, a programme of policy influence led by an experienced Policy Champion, technological innovations, an annual UK Forum on Resource Efficiency, commercial and open-access software tools, researcher training and multi-channel communications.

Planned Impact

The key scientific drive of this proposal is the delivery of impact. The academic research programme has been designed around a Living Lab comprising a consortium of subscribing industrial partners, the research team and other relevant stakeholders. The Living Lab will create an evolving dialogue between the methods and applications of the Programme to give clear direction research needs and to maximise the impact of the work. In order to deliver impact in practice:

- The Programme team will deliver professionally written and designed quarterly strategic reports on current priority topics identified by consortium partners, for their use in addressing immediate strategic decisions and to gain feedback on priorities for research development
- Consortium subscriptions will be used entirely to fund project PhD students to apply methods developed in the research to specific contexts, to validate the methods and drive new developments.
- An annual one-day UK Forum on Resource Efficiency will be organised to engage the full stakeholder community in Resource Efficiency across the UK in order to foster new connections, share emerging research ideas, and create new connections.
- A highly qualified "Policy Champion" employed by the Programme will design and lead delivery of focused policy workshops based on Programme outputs to carefully targeted Resource-related audiences across Whitehall and Westminster.
- Publications designed for industrial audiences, deriving from the Programme's academic output, will be disseminated through networks activated by consortium partners to influence future research and development agendas.
- Software implementing a Physical Resources Observatory, the core activity of Challenge 2, will be developed and released as open-access code and data to allow a broad community of resource analysts to experience, apply and enhance the outputs of the Programme directly.
- Software to support enumeration of the performance of existing design, processing and supply chain options will be developed and released through commercial or open-access channels as appropriate.
- The PI and members of the programme team will undertake "road-trips" (including delivering plenary talks, leading workshops and speaking at industry events) to share key outputs of the Programme and to stimulate UK leadership in innovation and the adoption of Research Efficiency in practice.

Description This award began in April 2019, and in June 2019 outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May initiated a change in the Climate Change Act, in response to social protests, mandating that the UK should cut its emissions by 100% by 2050. This is scientifically and socially absolutely right, and passed unanimously through both Houses of Parliament - but possibly without anyone really understanding its consequences. As a result, at a first technical retreat of the UK FIRES academic team, we decided to develop a major public-facing report at the end of November 2019 exploring the reality of this zero emissions target. The report "Absolute Zero" has had widespread impact, in policy and the media and on 6th February 2020 was the subject of a full debate in the House of Lords. The report explored the realities of delivering zero emissions largely with today's technologies, as a pragmatic to over-optimism about new technologies which currently dominates discussion of climate policy. It has led to extensive media and public discussion, both positive and negative, and an enormous number of speaker invitations which Professor Allwood and other members of the team are trying to fulfil. The report was discussed by the CEOs and CTOs of the UK's Catapult network, who have asked UK FIRES to follow-up the main report with sectorally focused reports on the innovation opportunity for UK businesses revealed by the strict target. These reports will be the focus of our first Annual Forum on 30th March 2020 and we aim to release them in summer 2020.
Exploitation Route Absolute Zero is of fundamental importance to the UK's approach to designing its plans for climate mitigation, and as the promises of breakthrough technologies fail to deliver, is likely to be seen as a pioneering manual for pragmatic change. We anticipate issuing an expanded update of the report later in 2020, ahead of COP26 in Glasgow, and hope that it will influence policy planning at both industrial and governmental levels, as well as informing an increasing concerned and engaged public.

The report has also given a sharp focus to our research agenda: relative reductions in emissions are no longer relevant when within thirty years we are obliged to be operating with zero emissions. This is strongly directing the choices we make about our research priorities.

Description Because UK FIRES aims at delivering an industrial strategy compatible with the UK's recently revised Climate Change Act, it is virtually impossible to separate its academic and non-academic impacts - so pease see the summary of findings which address this question as much as the academic one.
