Energy scenarios and implications for future electricity demand

Graham Ault, Damien Frame, Nick Hughes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter sets out four energy scenarios for Great Britain in 2050 that are intended, as a set, to provide insight, assist strategic planning and promote discussion on future electricity networks and the electricity system as a whole. These scenarios were originally prepared by members and associates of the SuperGen FlexNet consortium for Ofgem in the context of their Long-Term Electricity Network Scenarios (LENS) project and benefited from several rounds of stakeholder consultation, workshops and peer review.
