The original 2050 Pathways Analysis Report

The original 2050 Pathways Analysis report[1] was published in July 2010 and documents most of the technical assumptions in the 2050 Pathways Analysis.

In response to the July-October 2010 call for evidence changes were made to some of the assumptions in the calculator. These are documented in the The Government's response to the Call for Evidence - Part 2[2] and cover:

  • Hydrogen
  • Including a fuel choice in Carbon Capture and Storage
  • Electricity balancing
  • Bioenergy conversion processes
  • Biomass power generation
  • Offshore wind Level 4
  • Tidal range capacity factor
  • Industry disaggregation into two levers
  • Transport
  • Space heating – home insulation levels
  • Agriculture disaggregation into two levers
