– ETI publishes scenarios depicting a low carbon energy system transition

– Report says the UK can implement an affordable 35-year transition to a low carbon energy syste

– To prepare the UK for any longer-term transition there is a need to understand the implications of the country’s options and then make choices

– Two alternative scenarios are representative of the scale of challenges the UK faces in any move to low carbon energy system

March 4th 2015 – Two potential scenarios showing how the UK can transition to a low carbon energy system have been published by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI).

The “Options, Choices, Actions” Report displays how the UK can implement an affordable 35 year transition to a low carbon energy system by 2050, but there are different ways of getting there.

It concentrates on two potential scenarios called Clockwork and Patchwork.
