Topic(s): Renewables, Economics

In July 2010, the Government published its 2050 Pathways Analysis work. The analysis explored a range of potential pathways, choices and trade-offs for achieving long-term greenhouse gas emissions reduction target and ensuring the UK’s energy needs are met.

The 2050 Pathways Analysis was published as a Call for Evidence, running from 27th July to 5th October 2010. The questions on which evidence was sought are set out in Annex A. The United Kingdom’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) published the analysis as a Call for Evidence in order to test with a wider range of experts and stakeholders whether the assumptions and data underpinning the model were considered to be sound and based on the best available evidence.

The response to the Call for Evidence was very positive. The overwhelming opinion was that the 2050 Pathways Analysis was a valuable tool and a useful contribution to the debate about the United Kingdom’s energy future.

This report sets out how DECC revised the model, and the evidence and assumptions that underlie the changes they made (see Part 2A).
