Energy and Carbon Policy Support

Energy systems require radical transformation to meet energy and climate change goals. In turn, this requires effective policy measures. Energy policies must change both the way we supply energy as well as how it is used across the spectrum of industrial, commercial and residential sectors. Read more...

Carbon Capture and Storage

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is recognised as a key technology option if CO2 emissions are to be reduced whilst keeping fossil fuels (such as coal and gas) in the electricity supply mix. Fossil fuels are anticipated to remain an important part of the United Kingdom (UK) electricity generation mix for some time. Read more...

GHG inventories
Greenhouse Gas Inventories and Projections

The report of the fifth Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that the main cause of the current global warming is greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) from human or anthropogenic activities. In order to reduce GHGs, countries need to understand the quantities of GHGs emitted in the past and current levels of emissions. Creating estimates of emissions and removals of GHGs due to anthropogenic activities – so called GHG inventories underpin our thinking on GHG mitigation activities. Read more... 

Thumb green finance b
Economic and financial modelling

Economic and financial models, or quantitative analysis, are an essential part of investment and policy decisions in the energy sector. Models help ensure that policy and investment decisions are robust enough to deal with the uncertainties within the energy sector. They can help to find the best solutions available to balance costs, benefits and constraints. Read more...
