Report predicts Net Zero success
A new report from UK Power Networks predicts that over 4.5 million electric vehicles (EVs) could be on the roads, almost 250,000 households could feature solar panels and up to a million domestic electric heat pumps could be installed by 2030.
The report, titled 2021 Distribution Future Energy Scenarios, outlines four scenarios, three of which put the UK on course for Net Zero Carbon by 2050.
UK Power Networks’ director of customer services, strategy and regulation Sul Alli said: “The Government’s Ten Point Plan has signalled an acceleration of the UK’s transition to a net-zero carbon economy. We are determined to be at the forefront in our industry and make sure no customers in the areas we serve, are left behind.
“That’s why we’ve worked hand in hand with local authorities and partners to deliver this project. By understanding how the future might look, we can innovate, plan, prepare and invest strategically to make our network ready for net-zero.”
