Energy comparison customers may be interested to learn that a comprehensive review of the UK's energy infrastructure is due to be carried out.
The Energy Technologies Institute will be looking into the costs and performance of the electricity, gas, hydrogen and heat energy sectors and analysing transmission, distribution, storage, conversions and connections operations between now and 2050.
Dr David Clarke, chief executive of the institute, commented: "The UK has agreed to a legally binding 80 per cent reduction in CO2 by 2050, whilst maintaining a sufficient supply of energy. The national energy system in 2050 is unlikely to look like it does today."
He noted that it is likely to require changes to heat and electricity distribution and to facilitate new gases.
"The targets are challenging and if we are to cut CO2 emissions whilst, at the same time, meeting an anticipated increase in demand, it is essential that we maximise efficiency of energy generation, transmission and distribution," Dr Clarke added.
