The Institute of Physics is the professional body and learned society for physics in the UK and Ireland, inspiring people to develop their knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of physics. We work with a range of partners to support and develop the teaching of physics in schools; we encourage innovation, growth and productivity in business including addressing significant skills shortages; and we provide evidence-based advice and support to governments across the UK and in Ireland.
Contribution of Physics to Net Zero
Tackling climate change requires several interventions in different areas of energy production to reduce carbon emissions. Physics is at the heart of driving the development of new crucial low-carbon technologies to help the UK achieve Net Zero.
