This study, commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change from NERA Economic Consulting, looks at the interaction between these reforms with other aspects of the prevailing market and regulatory arrangements in the electricity market, and in particular the system integration costs associated with alternative low-carbon generation technologies.
This assessment looks at future flood risk in the UK. It considers three climate change scenarios and three population growth projections: low, high and no growth. The analysis presented covers the whole of the UK and the risks associated with coastal, fluvial, surface water and groundwater flooding.
This research by the AVOID2 consortium describes an assessment of the global-scale impacts of climate change under three different potential temperature pathways through the 21st Century. These pathways reach peaks of 2ºC, 3ºC and 4ºC above pre-industrial values by 2100.
This research, by AECOM, provides an aggregate assessment of climate change impacts on the goods and benefits provided by the UK’s natural assets. It was one of four projects commissioned to inform the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment evidence report published in 2016.
This research evaluates the contributing factors for the current levels of risk in water resource planning and then projects these according to a selection of various climate, population, adaptation and environmental protection approaches to 2100.
The Committee on Climate Change commissioned Element Energy and ICCT to understand in more detail the specific contributions to the emissions gap for the UK car and van fleet. The research also examines the potential long-term impact of new laboratory and on-road test procedures and the extent to which they can close the gap.
