Zero Carbon Britain 2030: A NEW ENERGY STRATEGY
The second report of the Zero Carbon Britain project from
the Centre for Alternative Technology
Science says "we must"
Technology says "we can"
Time to say "we will"
ZCB2030 is an aspiration and an environmental necessity. Based on ground-breaking research commissioned by the Centre for Alternative Technology, ZCB2030 sets out to show how Britain could eliminate emissions from fossil fuels within 20 years and break its dependence on imported
energy. Based on the latest scienti c evidence on climate change and years of practical in-the-field research, it brings together the ideas and experience of some of our leading and most respected environmental thinkers. Includes contributions from thirteen universities, twelve research bodies and NGOs and eight key industry players.
