The scenarios all achieve the near decarbonisation of the power sector by 2030 without new nuclear power. The generation mix differs according to the level of electricity demand and the use of different methods for ensuring system security as shown in the table opposite. In all cases, the scenarios make full provision for ambitious increases in electric vehicles (EVs) and electric heating. Energy efficiency and behavioural change lead to the reductions in demand in the ambitious demand scenarios. The volume of renewable capacity installed by 2020 in all scenarios is similar to that set out in the government’s Renewable Energy Roadmap in July 2011. However, critically, the scenarios envisage installation continuing at a sim...
