In a fast changing energy landscape and a climate emergency, there are a number of topics that are currently shaping the bigger picture. We’ve selected the most current areas to provide a comprehensive look at the resources, reports and latest news you need to know about. These are the policies and areas of change that are required today to achieve the UK Government’s ambitions of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
