ICE’s recent State of the Nation 2020: Infrastructure and the 2050 net-zero target
report put forward a series of policy recommendations for overcoming the challenges for achieving the 2050 net-zero target. The central recommendation was for government to deliver a plan for transitioning the UK’s economic infrastructure networks to a net-zero footing.
This policy paper expands on that recommendation by examining what a plan for transitioning infrastructure to a net-zero footing should consider. In doing so, it examines the key policy choices that will need to be made in relation to four key areas:
The future energy mix
Pathways to decarbonising transport
Pathways for decarbonising heat
Reducing emissions from harder-to-abate sectors
This policy paper should be read in conjunction with State of the Nation 2020.
