Power sector scenarios for the fifth carbon budget

This report, Power sector scenarios for the fifth carbon budget, sets out scenarios for the UK power sector in 2030 as an input to the Committee’s advice on the fifth carbon budget.

These scenarios are not intended to set out a prescriptive path. Instead, they provide a tool for the Committee to verify that its advice can be achieved with manageable impacts for the criteria in the Climate Change Act, including competitiveness, affordability and energy security.
