26 Apr 2009

This Working Paper is the second in a series which aims to provide insights into the use of scenarios for informing low carbon energy policy.

Building on insights from a historical overview of strategic scenario planning in the first working paper of the series (Hughes, 2009), this paper reviews selected recent UK and international low-carbon energy scenarios, analyses their strengths and weaknesses, and offers some suggestions for improving the strategic power of future UK low-carbon energy scenarios.
