This research, by Professor Janette Webb from the University of Edinburgh, was commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change to inform the ‘Next Steps for UK Heat Policy‘ report published in October 2016.
The CCC convened an expert Advisory Group to help consider policy, priorities, and decision points up to 2030, to position the UK for near zero emissions from buildings by 2050. The group reviewed three ‘What Works’ for policy reports and preliminary results from a Frontier Economics study on the future of the gas grid. We discussed with the Secretariat their emerging proposals. This Advisory Group report provides a Chair’s summary of discussions about a policy package to achieve 2030 carbon budget scenarios.
