The UK has a legal target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050. The shift to a zero-carbon society will mean major changes to Britain’s economy and society over the next 30 years.
But how can we get there? Good Energy worked in collaboration with Energy Systems Catapult to test how the UK could reach the target under a set of distinct scenarios. In a report launched this week, Good Energy lays out four hypothetical pathways to achieving net zero, with a focus on how real people fit in. This unique report demonstrates how renewable energy offers the quickest, cheapest and cleanest option to deliver net zero by 2050 and boost the economy to benefit everyone.
