Decarbonising the UK energy system: accelerated development of low carbon energy supply technologies

Decarbonising the UK energy system: accelerated development of low carbon energy supply technologies
Decarbonising the UK energy system: accelerated development of low carbon energy supply technologies
This is the second in a series of reports from UK ERC’s Energy 2050 project. It investigates the prospects for accelerated development of a range of low carbon energy supply technologies, and the impact of this acceleration on the decarbonisation of the UK energy system. The technologies analysed include a number of renewables (marine, bioenergy, wind and solar PV) and also other low carbon options (carbon capture and storage, nuclear power and fuel cells).Technology acceleration is analysed firstly by devising detailed technology-by technology accounts of accelerated development, and then system-level modelling of the potential impacts of this acceleration on the UK energy system from now to 2050. The report highlights the potentially important role for low carbon supply technology acceleration in the transition to a low carbon energy system in the UK, especially over longer timescales.

Abstract

This is the second in a series of reports from UK ERC’s Energy 2050 project. It investigates the prospects for accelerated development of a range of low carbon energy supply technologies, and the impact of this acceleration on the decarbonisation of the UK energy system. The technologies analysed include a number of renewables (marine, bioenergy, wind and solar PV) and also other low carbon options (carbon capture and storage, nuclear power and fuel cells).Technology acceleration is analysed firstly by devising detailed technology-by technology accounts of accelerated development, and then system-level modelling of the potential impacts of this acceleration on the UK energy system from now to 2050. The report highlights the potentially important role for low carbon supply technology acceleration in the transition to a low carbon energy system in the UK, especially over longer timescales.
