Net-zero: Investing in low carbon generation with LCP
Date: Monday 24 February 2020
Location: Energy UK Offices, 26 Finsbury Square (1st Floor), London EC2A 1DS
According to the Committee on Climate Change, low carbon electricity generation must quadruple by 2050 in order to deliver net-zero. Full decarbonisation of the power sector alone will require a balanced generation mix including a high level of renewables, running alongside firm low carbon power from new nuclear, flexibility, storage, and new technology solutions (such as hydrogen and Carbon Capture Usage and Storage (CCUS)).
The actual cost of meeting net-zero will be unprecedented. Appropriate policy frameworks and market arrangements are needed immediately in order to deploy private investment to successfully finance and facilitate the meeting of these goals.
In collaboration with LCP, join our expert panel, on the launch of our Investing in Net-Zero study, to discuss how to deliver such a scale of investment, ensuring best value for customers whilst maintaining security of supply.
