The Event

This meeting of the Innovative Zero Carbon Working Group (IZCWG) is happening alongside the seventh Energy Capital Partnership Collaboration Day. It will look at decarbonisation of the power grid, clean tech innovation opportunities under the Innovation Accelerator programme, and funding opportunities from Innovate UK for Net Zero. There will also be more opportunity than usual for informal networking and discussion over lunch and hot desking.

We hope this will be a bigger than ever chance to make connections and explore potential collaboration opportunities.

Directions

Public transport – the 60, X1 and X2 go from the city centre to near Haybarns Circus, from which it is a short but regrettably exciting walk to BEIC. Tyseley railway station is a 25 minute walk from BEIC, or a four minute cab ride.

Active – TEP can be easily reached from the city centre by following the Grand Union canal past Ackers Adventure by bicycle or scooter, and then turning left onto Millstream Way (a greenway). This takes you out to a slip road towards Veolia. Turn right towards Veolia, then next left to Tyseley Energy Park, and BEIC is the next left. Cyclestreets journey planner can help.

Driving – Firstly, use postcode B25 8DW. Do NOT follow google maps! It doesn’t yet show the new access road you will need to use. Use the map at the bottom of the BEIC webpage.
