The Energy and Climate Change Committee has launched an inquiry exploring key challenges and potential solutions to meeting the UK’s 2020 renewable energy targets for heat and transport. The key questions the committee is seeking responses to include;
- Does the Government have the right policies in place to meet its 2020 renewable energy targets in the heat and transport sectors and if not where are policies missing or inadequate?
- How could a whole systems approach across the power, heat and transport sectors be utilised to ensure the 2020 targets are met?
- To what extent is electrification of heat and transport a viable approach up to 2020 and beyond?
- What are the challenges (regulatory, technological, behavioural, and others) to decarbonising heat and transport over the longer-term and how might these be overcome?
