Icebreaking

Icebreaking is the on-ramp to Net Zero Data innovation. It convenes stakeholders in a neutral environment with a focus on specific challenges. Together we identify priority value cases, map out the data value chain, and prioritise actions and steps to delivery.

Outcome: Create value from data internally and externally.

Outputs:
Icebreaking outputs include:

  • Identification of priority use case(s) from both internal & external perspectives
    (e.g. electric vehicles, flex, energy systems map, transport, built world, as agreed during the programme)
  • Exploration of product and service innovation, driven by priority use cases
  • Models to assist in breaking down internal & external data silos and unlocking internal innovation
  • Partnership development with stakeholders and related parts of the Net Zero Data ecosystem
  • Collaboration with IB1 to develop and foster the broader innovation ecosystem
    (e.g. joint bidding, joint development with startups, secondment as deemed appropriate).

The Icebreaking process will be tailored to your organisation’s specific needs.

Timing
Icebreaking begins with a review, scoping and planning exercise to determine metrics for success and a development roadmap. Between two and four weeks from the Effective Date to project kick-off to enable scheduling of key stakeholders.

Icebreaker One, as an independent actor, assists by convening and catalysing activity across sectors and bridging between the public and private sectors.
