The Committee on Climate Change report says that nuclear power currently appears to be the most cost-effective of the low carbon technologies, and should form part of the mix assuming safety concerns can be addressed.
The report sets the Committee’s advice on the potential for renewable energy development in the UK, and advice on whether existing targets should be reviewed.
The Committee was asked to provide this advice as part of the Coalition Agreement in May 2010.
The report contains new analysis of technical feasibility and economic viability of renewable and other low-carbon energy technologies and scenarios for renewable energy deployment to 2030.
