Energy technology could help the UK meet 50% of 2030 carbon reduction target

Centrica publishes new report showing how new energy technology could meet more than half of 2030 carbon reduction targets.

Centrica plc has today released a new report which shows that new energy technology could meet more than half of the 20% carbon reduction target by 2030 for the healthcare, industry and hospitality sectors, as set out by the Clean Growth Strategy.

Published following the IPCC’s report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C, the Distributed Energy: Powering sustainability report highlights the opportunity for a range of distributed energy technologies such to deliver an 11% saving across the sectors, which together represent over a quarter (27%) of emissions.

The report also recommends that a full assessment be completed across all sectors of business and the public sector to identify the opportunities posed by distributed energy technology for the UK.
