‘Net zero progress is not just a number’: The sector for energy storage has strengthened its presence over the past year.

That’s the suggestion from Alastair Martin, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Flexitricity who spoke about the progressive growth of renewables and how the net zero target can change the way people act.

He said the net zero 2050 target has already seen many businesses accelerate their efforts to decarbonise: “The net zero carbon target is hugely important, because if you are to reach net zero by 2050, you have to achieve a lot in the next five years.

Mr Martin also suggested a net zero future would have a non-linear effect: “It’s not just a number. It makes a qualitative change in the way people behave. Zero carbon net is very different to an 80% reduction. It’s not just 20% better, is qualitatively better.”
