The College has been the driving force behind a new partnership initiative with employers, to develop innovative low carbon solutions to real issues currently facing industry.

The ‘Fuel Change’ challenge involves groups of apprentices, school pupils and graduates working together to come up with ideas to tackle tasks set by partner companies.

Challenges range across six industry sectors: ground transportation, aviation, oil and gas, manufacturing, energy, and construction.

Their ideas will be developed further into real time solutions that will help the country reach its target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2045.

University of Strathclyde Power Networks Demonstration Centre has recently been brought on board to assist teams with research to help bring their projects to life.

Recent organisations that have joined as supporters are Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, who link together businesses, university experts, the public sector and the economic development networks, to support a culture of innovation to drive transformational change across the construction industry.

The Data Lab is also a new partner. Its mission is to help Scottish business maximise value from data.
