Zero Carbon Britain: Making it Happen. For 10 years now, CAT has been undertaking increasingly detailed research showing that we have the technology needed to rise to the climate challenge. This research remains an important tool for campaigners and policymakers needing to showcase how we can overcome the perceived technical barriers to change. Following the Paris climate agreement, however, there is increasing acceptance that we can and must move towards a zero carbon future. The challenge is increasingly around how this change is delivered. Rather than an unresolved technical challenge, it is now widely accepted that we face a mix of economic, cultural and psychological barriers. But, once again, we could not find any unified piece of research that worked across different disciplines and at a range of levels to explore how we overcome the various barriers, and to show the co-benefits and synergies of building a zero carbon future. Zero Carbon Britain: Making it Happen is our response to that gap.
