The forthcoming Climate Change Bill in the UK, the EU 2 °C target and AB-32 in California will each apply a challenging constraint to their respective economies. The impact on the energy system and the changes it must see over the coming 20-40 years will be profound. Action will need to start now, driven by significant new policy frameworks. This presentation will explore the nature of those changes, the response required and the policy architecture needed to deliver the desired outcome.
