The path to an 80% reduction Carbon Emissions
The following information is taken from the Committee on Climate report - Building a Low Carbon Economy, ref:
Meeting an 80% target would be challenging but feasible based on a range of options for reducing emissions including:
(e.g. loft and cavity wall insulation, use of more efficient appliances, turning appliances off and using less
air conditioning), which will be particularly important for reducing emissions in the period to 2020.
, starting now and continuing through the 2020s, based on replacing existing conventional fossil fuel fired plant with renewable
technologies (e.g. wind, tidal), nuclear new build and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).
, first through improving fuel efficiency of conventional engines and increased use of sustainable first generation biofuels, with progressive
introduction of new technologies such as electric cars, plug in hybrids and hydrogen vehicles, and second generation biofuels.
through increased use of biomass in boilers and CHP, air exchange and ground source heat pumps, and modern electric storage heating.
through the introduction of new technologies such as CCS in cement, iron and steel.
