Shifting the focus: energy demand in a net-zero carbon UK

Our report takes the Government’s most recent statement on energy transition, the Clean Growth Strategy (BEIS, 2017), as a starting point and draws on current knowledge from the UK energy demand research community.

We consider the Strategy’s goal of accelerating the pace of clean growth, and build on the comprehensive, quantitative analysis by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC, 2018). We agree that major improvements in energy productivity in businesses, transport and homes are crucial to achieving this goal.
