This report sets the committee’s advice on the Fourth Carbon Budget, covering the period 2023-27.
Secretary of State The Rt Hon Chris Huhne MP said:
“I welcome the Committee on Climate Change’s advice on setting the Fourth Carbon Budget. It’s a report we will want to consider in detail. We know that the status quo will not be enough to cut carbon, which is why we are planning to undertake a comprehensive review of the electricity market, increase home energy efficiency under the Green Deal and create a Green Investment Bank. We will formally respond to the report in spring next year.”
