Where will we get our energy from over the next 20 years, and how will we use it? These are key questions not just for the energy industry, but for society as a whole.
National Grid’s Future Energy Scenarios aims to give expert insight into these questions and considers a range of possible energy futures.
Energy has become front page news; the future of energy for the UK has never been so important. Electricity Market Reform (EMR), the General Election in 2015, environmental legislation, energy costs and developments in the economy will all have a major impact on the future energy landscape.
No one can be certain how the energy future will evolve and this uncertainty may continue for decades. The National Grid’s Future Energy Scenarios (FES) represent transparent, holistic paths through that uncertain landscape to help Government, their customers and other stakeholders make informed decisions. These scenarios are not forecasts, they are predictions of the future that seek to discover plausible and credible conclusions for the future of energy.
