The sobering report from the International Panel on Climate Change today sets out the urgency of transforming our energy system.
The dramatic growth in renewables this decade shows what we can achieve with the right policy framework.
We are calling on the government to respond with an overall plan for net zero emissions and five urgent policy changes to unlock investment:
-End ban on onshore wind and open up CfDs to solar and onshore wind
– Scrap plans to end support for small scale renewables
– Bring back zero carbon homes standards
– Bring forward ban on petrol and diesel cars to 2030
– Put decarbonisation at heart of energy regulator’s mission.
We will shortly release a blog by our director Johnny below.
