London’s Zero Carbon Pathways Tool shows the ways that carbon emissions might be reduced to net zero by 2050, despite a growing population.
To model London’s current energy consumption and carbon emissions, we have used a detailed information on building type, energy consumption, power demand and capacity, transport activity and emissions from industry. From this baseline, we have run several scenarios for how London’s emissions could reach net zero by 2050:
Energy and carbon results are presented by sector, as well as some sector specific results such as vehicle kilometres for transport and supply by fuel type for district heat. For each energy efficiency scenario, the implied number of retrofits and heat pump installations are presented. Detailed cost and peak demand impacts have been modelled for the central energy efficiency scenario and all energy systems scenarios. This has been modelled on a pan-London basis so borough level results are an estimate only. Please get in touch for further information on borough specific carbon budgets.
