Matthew Farrow, director of policy at the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE), responds to the Government's Net Zero strategy, Build Back Greener:
"The next few years really are make a break however and the hard work is only just beginning. The challenge is to convert to the broad outlines we now have for technology choices and rollouts into actual physical deployment across millions of households and thousands of communities. Furthermore this must be done in a joined up way. The engineering and consultancy sector will be crucial in delivering this. Only we have the combination of engineering and design expertise, systems thinking, data insights and cross sectoral experience to make a net zero society a reality."
