ETRI Lecture Series 2015: Preparing the UK for the energy transition

The UK’s energy environment is a complex set of needs, technologies and choices.

Given the challenges, how do we prepare for the future? The Energy Technologies Institute‘s (ETI) internationally peer-reviewed Energy System Modelling Environment (ESME) helps answer some of those questions, identifying key areas for strategic investment by the ETI and also underpinning and informing UK Government energy policy.

The ETI scenarios demonstrate the crucial importance of the near-term measures designed to help us achieve our carbon budgets. At the same time they highlight the scale of the challenge ahead and the action which is required now to prepare for the next stages of our journey towards a secure, affordable low carbon energy system for the UK.

In this lecture, Jo Coleman, strategy development director of the Energy Technologies Institute, will discuss some of the key points of ETI energy futures report, “Targets, technologies, infrastructure and investments – preparing the UK for the energy transition”.
