This blog, as part of the Rethinking Electricity Markets project, describes a framework methodology and metrics that can be used to estimate the full set of cost and benefits associated with a wide range of low/zero carbon technologies, including generation, storage, interconnection, demand reduction and demand response.
Achieving zero carbon electricity by 2035 (as recommend by the Climate Change Committee) will be key to decarbonising many other sectors, including road transport, buildings (i.e. heating), and industry. The UK Emissions Trading System combined with electricity decarbonisation policy mandates could be vital.

The UK wants to be a global leader in the fight against climate change, and it can take a massive step forward this year by increasing the ambition of the new UK Emissions Trading System.
This is the third in a series of six policy briefs setting out our current thinking on policies for decarbonising buildings over the next two decades as outlined in ‘Six Steps to Zero Carbon Buildings’ and the accompanying ‘Towards an enduring policy framework to decarbonise buildings’.
Energy Systems Catapult is calling for the creation of an economy-wide ‘Carbon Regulator’ to oversee monitoring, reporting, and verification of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and removal across the economy.
This report makes the case for a new ‘Carbon Regulator’ to oversee accurate and coherent monitoring, reporting, and verification of greenhouse gas emissions reduction and removal across the economy.
This consultation looks to ensure standards, both in energy efficiency and in overheating, as determined by the Building Regulations, are ambitious enough to put us on the right track to meet the 2050 Net Zero carbon emissions target and to adapt to rising temperatures over the coming years.
On the 19th May, George Day will be on panel discussing ‘Delivering System Flexibility and the EV Rollout’ at the Utility Week Live Summit.
The government needs to get out of the way to enable innovators to accelerate the shift to a carbon-free electricity grid well before 2050, according to a new report by Energy Systems Catapult. Rethinking Electricity Markets calls for a new wave of reforms to create a zero carbon electricity grid that works for consumers.
Rethinking Electricity Markets is an Energy Systems Catapult initiative to develop proposals to reform electricity markets so that they best enable innovative, efficient, whole energy system decarbonisation.
Rebecca Stafford will be discussing the practicalities of delivering the government aim of a green industrial revolution. Join her on 25th May 2021.
