Full description

Join UKERC as they launching 'Disrupting the UK energy system: causes, impacts and policy implications' on the 19th June, 16.00-19.00.

Following the IPCC report on limiting global warming to 1.5°C, and the recent CCC report on net-zero, there is increasing pressure for countries to go well beyond their Paris Agreement commitments - and to implement transitions to ‘net zero’ energy systems. This will require economy-wide changes that extend well beyond the energy system. A key feature of this emerging revolution will be the disruption of established technologies, markets and business models.

The report presents the findings from a cross-cutting research project on disruptive change in energy systems, and explores three main questions:

•            What are the potential sources of disruption to the UK energy system?

•            Which sectors and actors might face particularly disruptive change?

•            How should government and other decision-makers respond to ensure that the low carbon transition is implemented successfully?
