This report was commissioned from Element Energy and Imperial College London by the Committee. It provides supporting research for the CCC’s Fourth Carbon Budget Review – part 2.
The supporting research looks at the cost of the infrastructure required for a low carbon system by 2030, with regards to transmission and distribution systems. It explores:
- a number of decarbonisation scenarios to 2030,
- the impacts of these scenarios on the transmission and distribution system, and
- the barriers to deployment.
