Accelerating to Net Zero: A sector led approach to an economy-wide carbon policy framework

Net Zero Carbon Policy is a new Energy Systems Catapult thought leadership project, focusing on how the UK can build an innovation-friendly, economy-wide framework for Net Zero. The sector led approach is proposed in this report:

  • Recognises the importance of sector specific barriers to change.
  • Avoids relying on an overarching carbon pricing mechanism.
  • Enables carbon policy to be designed at a sectoral level to address sector specific challenges (e.g. mitigating competitiveness impacts in industrial decarbonisation or enabling energy suppliers to create attractive consumer propositions for home energy services and heat decarbonisation).
