… an approach to offset the residual emissions. Some solutions (e.g. social housing retrofit, investment in additional renewable energy capacity) are possible in 2025 but not acceptable in the long term. By 2050, residual emissions in the UK will have to be less than 10% of what they are now, leaving only a marginal role for offsetting by increasing plant cover, for example tree planting. Our…

… energy scenarios every year. These are used to facilitate the understanding of how the UK’s electricity generation mix could develop. We focused on the two scenarios which can meet (or be close to meeting) the UK climate change targets: the ‘Two Degrees’ and the ‘Community Renewables’ scenarios. As the ‘Two Degrees’ scenario relies on a large proportion of new nuclear energy plants

BEIS and HM Treasury projections BEIS and HM Treasury have also published their projections for the future carbon content…
