This AECB report on alternatives to current UK energy policy history  offers an alternative to the emerging orthodoxy of large-scale electrification of heat and road transport as a way to achieve or beat the UK’s 2050 CO2 emissions target based on  technology solutions to  energy efficiency throughout the economy.

Less is More : Energy Security after Oil – PDF download

Authors: Andy Simmonds & David Olivier

This report has been published at the end of an unprecedented 15 years in UK energy policy history.It began with the formal acceptance of the need for a climate change policy by the last Conservative Government in 1997 and culminated with the Climate Change Act and the 4th Carbon Budget. LIM is a significant new contribution to the debate.

LIM offers an alternative to the emerging orthodoxy of large-scale electrification of heat and road transport as a way to achieve or beat the UK’s 2050 CO2 emissions target. This is based on more vigorous and systematic pursuit of energy efficiency throughout the economy; on technologies such as

  • large-scale solar heat, piped to urban buildings;
  • a road and air transport system synthesising liquid fuels in part from renewable electricity, supplementing the biofuel resource;
  • a small electricity supply system, supplied largely by despatchable sources, assisting with network security;
  • and the more vigorous pursuit of carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration options, particularly in the biosphere.

Wire bound hard copies of this report  are available at the price of £35.
