The report details a technically robust scenario in which the UK has risen to the challenge of climate change by rapidly reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net zero. It demonstrates that we can do this using only currently available technology, whilst maintaining a modern standard of living, eating well, and meeting our energy demand at all times with 100% renewable UK energy sources.
This latest report includes the most up-to-date knowledge across a range of disciplines, and integrates new detailed research in two key areas:
- Balancing supply and demand: How to 'keep the lights on' with a 100% renewable energy system.
- Land use and low carbon diets: How to manage our land to eliminate emissions and provide a healthy low carbon diet.
Summary of key findings - 'Report in Short'.
