Driving zero-carbon transitions and productivity growth in the UK

Our global macroeconomic model, E3ME, was used to explore the impacts of scenarios reflecting key decarbonisation policies featured in the UK Government’s 2020 Ten Point Plan and the 2021 Energy Security Strategy, relative to a baseline without these policies.

How impacts differed under two alternative versions of the wider world was explored; one in which other major economies act to accelerate decarbonisation alongside the UK, and another in which they do not.

The policies that were modelled impact the take-up of four key technologies: offshore wind, solar PV, private passenger electric cars, and heat pumps used in domestic dwellings.
