UK Energy System Modelling: Net Zero 2050

National Nuclear Laboratory’s UK Energy System Modelling: Net Zero 2050 report offers transformative new insights to inform the nation’s clean energy transition. In modelling the whole energy system, the report considers the role of nuclear in providing electricity, heat, hydrogen and synthetic fuels.

This modelling was conducted with independent specialists from Energy Systems Catapult and LucidCatalyst. This work was completed through the £46m Advanced Fuel Cycle Programme (AFCP), which NNL leads in partnership with the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) as part of the £505m Energy Innovation Programme.
