My 2050 - Energy Minister for a Day!

Do you have what it takes to be Energy Minister for a day?

The UK is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050. For this to happen, the UK economy should be transformed while ensuring secure, low-carbon energy supplies to 2050.

Using the MacKay Carbon Calculator, you can create pathways to find out how we might reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 and beyond.
