To help drive decarbonisation in the UK, the government has committed to publishing a Net Zero Strategy.
Solar and other renewables have made some strong progress towards decarbonisation, but there is still more to be done.
Low-carbon infrastructure must be at the heart of the COVID-19 recovery to provide jobs and economic security, with fairness embedded throughout.
Decarbonising housing is one of the “toughest challenges” for net zero, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has warned, and it is “vital” this challenge is not made harder.
The government should create a route to market for solar and onshore wind, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has said in its 2019 Progress Report.
The UK’s low carbon power generation capacity must quadruple by 2050 if the UK is to achieve net zero status in that time frame, with established technologies expected to do most of the “heavy lifting”.
The public should be made aware of the cost associated with locking out the cheapest forms of electricity generation from government support according to the chairman of the UK's independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC).
The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has become the latest organisation to call for a route to market for solar PV as it seeks more ambitious decarbonisation efforts from government.
