Rethinking Decarbonisation Incentives: Future Carbon Policy for Clean Growth

Energy Systems Catapult’s ‘Rethinking Decarbonisation Incentives’ (RDI) has explored how UK policies can promote clean growth by taking a whole system approach to carbon policy.
The UK has a complex mix of policies (including taxes, subsidies, standards, and regulations) which give rise to uneven and incomplete incentives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across the economy.

How To Retire Early

As the urgency of the climate crisis grows, new analysis reveals that coal is no longer the cheapest way to power the global economy. The cost of clean energy has fallen so far that new renewables are now cheaper than new coal plants virtually everywhere, and there are specific financial strategies that utilities and policymakers can use to engineer a faster phaseout of coal in various regions of the world.

Turning points for the ambition of European climate targets

Climate policy in the European Union (EU) is undergoing a paradigm shift. At the time of writing, policy-makers are debating changes in targets, governance and instruments to fit (better) with the newly established overarching objective of climate-neutrality by 2050 and to align with the Paris Agreement.

Our CTI 2050 Roadmap model was used to analyse possible trajectories for cutting the EU’s GHG emissions by -55% or -65% by 2030 compared with 1990 levels (excl. LULUCF and international bunkers).

Performance Standards: A Key Policy for Achieving Climate Goals

To meet long-term climate goals, new and more aggressive approaches are needed to obtain substantial energy savings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from existing buildings. Mandatory building performance standards are one such approach.
