This report assesses the potential contribution of tidal stream energy to sustainable growth in the UK to assess whether this constitutes a strategic priority for the UK.
This commentary, originally published in Business Green, explores the crucial role of monitoring, reporting and verification for greenhouse gas removals.
Market failures and willingness to accept the smart energy transition: Experimental evidence from the UK
This research uses a novel experiment to elicit the willingness to accept of 2,430 nationally representative UK households for smart meter installation. Randomized information treatments allow for assessment of the impact on adoption and willingness to accept of oft-cited market failures, namely imperfect information asymmetries and diffusion externalities
Response to the call for evidence made as part of the Independent Review of Net Zero commissioned by the UK’s Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
Peer-to-peer solar offers households who cannot have solar panels fixed to their own homes to access solar energy from their neighbours. But because this is an invisible form of pro-environmental behaviour, the rewards in the form of social approval are lower. This working paper finds that the ability to share reports of green behaviour online made people more likely to show interest in the scheme.
This report consists of a submission to a UK government consultation on designing business models for greenhouse gas removal technologies.
A significant share of German municipalities have amended their building codes to restrict solar installations, often to preserve the historical nature of towns. These restrictions have an economically important impact on solar adoption. These restrictions should be reviewed to see whether they are still warranted today and in the future, as technology evolves.
This article discusses who should pay for carbon removal technologies such as CCUS, DAC, and BECCS. Newly published research co-authored…
More than a year has now passed since China’s initial announcement on becoming carbon neutral by 2060. In this Guest Post for Carbon Brief, Chunping Xie asks, what expectations of progress does the world have of China – and has China lived up to them?
CCUS is necessary for the UK to reach its net-zero goals. This report assesses economic and potential employment opportunities and implications for the skills needed, as well as transferable strengths and capabilities from other sectors and barriers and enablers for CCUS growth in the UK.
