Connection and Integration of Offshore Renewable Energy Farms into UK Power Systems - one page summary

Large-scale offshore renewable energy farms, including wind, tidal stream and wave energy systems, are likely to play an increasingly significant role in enabling the UK to meet its long-term CO2 emissions reductions targets. However, the development and installation of large renewable energy farms off the coast of the UK provides a number of challenges in terms of:the collection of electrical energy offshore from individual and multiple renewable energy farms,the transportation of bulk electrical energy generated...

System Requirements For Alternative Nuclear Technologies (Phase 3) - Technical assessment of SMR heat extraction for district heat networks - Final Report

S. Friggens, P. Bell, D. Aufrance, R. Beaumont, D. Cook, C. Kaufmann & R. Ashley
Small Modular Nuclear Reactors (SMRs) are generally defined as nuclear reactors with a maximum electrical output below 300MWe.They are considered to have characteristics that are distinct from conventional large reactors and proponents claim that SMRs could offer a number of benefits to the UK’s future energy system, including the reliable provision of low-carbon electricity and heat, lower financing costs, and the opening up of additional sites closer to demand. At the present time however, there...

ETI Insights Report - Targeting a 30% improvement in fuel efficiency for marine vessels

S. Bradley
This ETI Insights document summarises the findings of ETI’s Marine Heavy Duty Vehicles project. Key headlines are:Shipping emits substantial amounts of CO2 which, without significant intervention, will rise as a proportion of our national emissions as we become less carbon dependent in other industry sectorsOcean voyaging ships have the biggest impacts on CO2 emission due to the length and speed of their voyages and the current calculation method1 underplays the UK’s share of international shipping...

Transport - An affordable transition to sustainable and secure energy for light vehicles in the UK - Full Report

The UK has committed to a legally binding obligation to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050 (against 1990).The primary issue is atmospheric concentration of CO2 which, once emitted, remains in the atmosphere for up to two centuries. Consequently, minimising cumulative CO2 emissions is at least as important as the 2050 obligation.

Light vehicles contribute around 16% of UK CO2 emissions, and are a major factor in congestion and urban air quality. Light vehicles...
