As part of a team with Element Energy, UCL IEDE academics Rokia Raslan and Yair Schwartz, recently completed work on new analysis commissioned by the Committee on Climate Change that aimed to understand the challenges of reducing emissions in homes which are expected to be among the hardest to decarbonise.

The research formed part of the extensive evidence-base for the new report, Net Zero – The UK’s contribution to stopping global warming issued in response to a request from the Governments of the UK, Wales and Scotland, asking the Committee to reassess the UK’s long-term emissions targets recommending a new emissions target for 2050.
