To develop new ideas to turn the tide on climate change, Imperial College and Mayor of London will together strengthen the plans for Centre for Climate Change Innovation (CCCI), one of the world’s leading clean technology hubs at its White City Campus in West London. This flagship project will be in line for a £8.6m of grant funding from the London Mayor’s office.
The fund comes as the University is working on to raise another £25m to support of the new CCCI, which will be led by Grantham Institute – Climate Change and the Environment.
The new hub will help the clean tech entrepreneurs to develop and commercialise climate related technologies. It will focus on five key areas:
Sustainable food production
Low carbon and climate resilient buildings
Manufacturing for a low carbon economy (including circular systems and remanufacturing)
Professor Richard Templer, director of innovation at the Grantham Institute, said the aim was to provide a major boost to the growing green economy of London.
Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, said he viewed that innovation and entrepreneurialism would perform in support of London’s wider decarbonisation plans.
