This project updated the UK Energy 2050 scenarios using the most recent version of the UK MARKAL model. The new UKERC scenarios are being used by a range of UKERC Core and Research Fund groups.
A UKERC research report was launched in March 2013 which compares the most recent UKERC MARKAL low-carbon scenarios with those produced with earlier versions of the model for UKERC (Energy 2050), the Committee on Climate Change and the Government (Carbon Plan).
