On the 28th of June 2018, the Committee for Climate Change’s (CCC) ‘Reducing UK emissions – 2018’ Report
set out four key messages to Government to put emissions reductions on track.
The UK has already achieved reductions in emissions of over 40%. However, the UK still must achieve the mandatory greenhouse gas emission target,
requiring emissions to be cut by 80 per cent by 2050
compared to 1990 levels, as set out by the Climate Change Act.
The decarbonisation of the power sector is no simple task and the CCC has made clear that achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions needs to be the number one target.
Following on from the CCC’s ‘net-zero’ Report
due in April, our timely forum will bring together representatives from across the UK's energy sector
to discuss the UK’s approach to heat policy.
