Towards a low carbon pathway for the UK

Towards a low carbon pathway for the UK – Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment University of Oxford. With a quarter of the UK’s generating capacity coming to the end of its life over the next ten years, as a nation we will need to make strategic investments in our energy infrastructure that will be felt throughout the rest of the century.

Furthermore as we progress towards the Government’s objective of secure energy, free of carbon, by 2050, our demand for electricity is set to double as we move more transport and heating to a dependence on electricity.

This study sets out some potential pathways to assist in the development of a long term strategy for UK nuclear energy and its associated fuel cycle.
