As recently announced, the UK Space Agency is funding a project between the Satellite Applications Catapult and GHGSat to provide UK organisations with access to high-resolution methane emissions satellite data. This programme, in conjunction with other initiatives, will increase UK public, academic and private sector understanding of the benefits of satellite-derived greenhouse gas data.
It will also build a community of users for satellite-derived methane data and provide a new evidence source to research and develop methods to aid international agreements and domestic net zero policy.
The aims of the project are to:
- Champion the benefits of space for UK industries including Oil and Gas, farming, large industrial processes and waste management – including supporting the realisation of business outcomes and helping to tackle the climate emergency.
- Catalyse investment in satellite-derived data, applications, and services by non-space businesses to grow the market within the period of the project.
- Enhance UK influence and reputation as a global leader in the exploitation of satellite-derived data applications and services.
To find out more about the data available and how to access it, join this webinar with representatives from the UK Space Agency, the Satellite Applications Catapult and GHGSat.
