This report shows that decarbonising electricity by 2030 is not only necessary to deliver on the UK’s climate commitments, but is the most cost effective way to provide a secure and affordable electricity supply while seizing the opportunity to build on the green growth of recent years.

Secondly, it examines how to reach this 2030 goal in a way that maximises economic opportunities, and minimises the costs.

An examination of the existing evidence on the available energy technologies, their costs, build-rates and the energy demand profile of the economy shows that decarbonising with renewables, and without nuclear power, is technically achievable and economically the sensible path.
