Title: Key implications

Content: The key implications of the UK 2050 pathway calculator, as reported in the orignal 2050 pathways report:

# Ambitious per capita energy demand reduction is needed – but is not sufficient
# Substantial electrification of heating, transport and industry is needed
# Electricity supply needs to be almost totally decarbonised, while supply may also need to double
# A growing level of variable renewable generation increases the challenge of balancing the electricity grid
# Sustainable bioenergy is a vital part of a low carbon energy system 
# Reduction in emissions from agriculture, waste, industrial processes and international transport will be necessary by 2050 
# Fossil fuels will continue to play an important role
