Consultation description

**Publication of response: **3 March 2011

We need a transformation of the UK economy to ensure secure low-carbon energy supplies to 2050. The UK is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050, relative to 1990 levels. We face major choices about how to move to a secure, low-carbon economy over this period.

The analysis in the 2050 Pathways work presents a framework through which to consider some of the choices and trade-offs which we will have to make over the next forty years. It is system-wide, covering all parts of the economy and all greenhouse gas emissions released in the UK. It shows that it is possible for us to meet the 80% emissions reduction target in a range of ways, and allows people to explore the combinations of effort which meet the emissions target while matching energy supply and demand.

In July 2010 the Department of Energy & Climate Change and other government departments published the 2050 Pathways Analysis, calculator and web tool as a call for evidence, with an invitation to submit comments on specific questions. This call for evidence is now closed and the Government would like to thank respondents for their contributions.

One hundred and sixteen stakeholder responses were received from both individuals and organisations, and in March 2011 the Government published the next phase of the 2050 Pathways Analysis.

Please see the main 2050 Pathways pages for more details of the project, including the latest version of the 2050 Calculator and other tools.

Call for Evidence document

2050 Pathways Analysis: This explains the assumptions and approach used in the 2050 work, including the trajectories for each sector of the economy and some of the implications. The report also describes six different illustrative pathways to show various successful routes to 2050, as well as a high-carbon reference case.
