WHAT IS IT?
The Future Electricity Series is an independent research series exploring what role fossil fuels, renewables and nuclear can play in providing sustainable, secure and affordable power in the short, medium and long term. By examining the benefits and risks of different technology mixes and sector pathways, we will set the scene for well-informed debate about the UK's power sector strategy, highlight the value of consensus and point to future policy challenges.
“Rhetoric in the energy debate has frequently sought to exploit political divides, often ignoring areas of consensus and driving political uncertainty. Carbon Connect’s Future Electricity Series is about making energy debate more constructive.”
Charles Hendry MP
“Compared with all the other reports I’ve read in this area, this is one of the best. Even when I disagree with the opinions they are well argued and well placed.”
Peter Lilley MP
“It has been a pleasure working with Carbon Connect in a cross-party environment on the Future Electricity Series, because it is really crucial wherever possible to strive for cross-party consensus on energy policy. We need less ideology and more evidence. That is what characterised the first report of the Future Electricity Series and will continue in Power from Renewables.”
Baroness Worthington, Future Electricity Series Co-Chair
