Strengthening the UK’s energy resilience and security

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther chapter contribution

Abstract

Energy is a key resource enabling the functioning of modern societies. Arguably, the fast-paced technological advances in the past 200 years have been based on plentiful supply of cheap energy. But cheap and plentiful are no more...
Policy recommendations:
•Encourage reductions in energy demand, particularly in sectors which are difficult to decarbonise such as aviation and freight.
•Incentivise more flexibility in the electrical system, additional energy storage capacity, and interconnection with Europe.
•Reduce reliance on imported energy by supporting generation of domestic low-carbon energy.
•Create an agency responsible for the UK’s energy resilience, taking a long-term and systems view on energy supply and demand.
