The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) commissioned Vivid Economics and Imperial College to consider the energy system implications of accelerated uptake of electric vehicles and hybrid heat pumps, compared to the CCC’s Fifth Carbon Budget Central scenario, with a focus on network implications.
The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) welcomes news that the UK Government intends to implement a series of new measures to help reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions and tackle climate change.
The Committee on Climate Change (CCC) today welcomes news that the UK Government intends to help establish the UK’s first net zero carbon industrial cluster, backed up with £170 million of funding for research, development and deployment - although it urges an earlier target date.
This report summarises the responses received to a Call for Evidence the Committee on Climate Change ran in late 2017 and early 2018 to inform its 'Biomass in a low-carbon economy' report.
This technical annex, by Dr Jeanette Whitaker, was produced to support the Committee on Climate Change's 2018 report on the role of biomass in a low-carbon economy.
This report, by Professor Patricia Thornley, Director of the European Bioenergy Institute at Aston University, is the Chair's summary produced on behalf of the advisory board convened for the Committee on Climate Change's (CCC) Biomass in a low-carbon economy report.
This report by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) assesses the potential role of hydrogen in the UK's low-carbon economy.
Hydrogen is a credible option to help decarbonise the UK energy system but its role depends on early Government commitment and improved support to develop the UK’s industrial capability, says a new report by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC).
This report for the CCC by Madano and Element Energy assesses the public acceptability of two alternative low-carbon technologies for heating the home: hydrogen heating and heat pumps.
The Paris Agreement demands tougher action to remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere. We must, at the same time, prepare for the inevitable climate change that is already happening. In this context, current uses of land in the UK must change, the CCC says in two new reports.
