GB has a stated intent of moving to an energy system capable of delivering a cost-effective decarbonised energy system by 2050 – thereby meeting the Committee on Climate Change’s 2050 carbon budgets. Sadly, the content of our energy policy (EP) does not deliver its good intention. As a recent IGov blog stated, GB may be talking the talk, but we are not walking the walk. Even worse, we seem to be trapped in a one step forward, two step back mentality. IGov is arguing that the Government / BEIS should develop a fit-for-purpose GB energy governance framework – analogous to the IGov fit-for-purpose GB energy governance framework, as a means to give direction and a boundary to our energy policy decisions.
