CCC cites E4tech in landmark report for UK decarbonisation

Today the UK’s Committee on Climate Change (CCC) released their much anticipated report on achieving net zero emissions. The CCC recommends that the UK should adopt a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions target for 2050, to deliver on the UK’s Paris Agreement commitment. Whilst CCC expect this target to be achievable with technologies that are known today, it relies crucially on clear, stable and well-designed policies to reduce emissions being introduced across the economy without delay. E4tech welcomes this strong step forward and will be busy assessing the implications for the energy sectors in which we work in the next few weeks. We are pleased to see that the report referenced our report ‘Energy Revolution: A Global Outlook’ (2018), commissioned by Drax and delivered with Imperial College London, which evaluated how rapidly nations are transforming their energy systems, and what lessons can be learned from the leading countries across five energy sectors.
