Energy and climate change

Electricity is the preferred source of energy, rather than fossil fuels, as it can be produced from sources that do not release any carbon emissions.

The UK has a target to remove carbon-based sources of energy and carbon emissions from the UK’s energy supply by 2035. This brings forward by 15 years the government’s commitment to a fully decarbonised power system by 2050, set out in their Energy White Paper.
