Future Energy Scenarios 2021


Our Future Energy Scenarios (FES) draw on hundreds of experts’ views to model four credible energy pathways for Britain over coming decades. Matthew Wright, our head of strategy and regulation, outlines what the 2021 outlook means for consumers, society and the energy system itself.
This year’s Future Energy Scenarios insight reveals a glimpse of a Britain that is powered with net zero carbon emissions.
Our analysis shows that our country can achieve its legally-binding carbon reduction targets: in three out of four scenarios in the analysis, the country reaches net zero carbon emissions by 2050, with Leading the Way – our most ambitious scenario – achieving it in 2047 and becoming net negative by 2050.
