The Association for Renewable Energy and Clean Technology (REA) recently released their energy strategy report and stated that with government support, renewables could ‘provide 50% of UK electricity by 2022 and 100% by 2032’.
11 years: that is the length of time REA claims we could, with effort, eliminate the use of fossil fuels in the UK.
This monumental transition from non-renewable to renewable energy would bring the UK ever closer to our 2050 target of net-zero.
How can this be done?
Transitions like these are huge and can sometimes feel unrealistic however, REA have developed a strategic pathway to achieve 100% renewables.
The pathway has undertaken a ‘resource and sector’ approach which addressed four key areas for renewables: Heat & Cooling, Transport, Power & Flexibility and Circular Bioresources.
By utilizing this holistic approach and engaging with these different sectors will support the progression of this movement although REA stated that the “early 2020’s is a critical time” to build up the momentum and encourage the transition to renewables.
The transition is projected to offer around 200,000 jobs in the renewables sector from now to 2032 which would positively influence the economy whilst improving employability and job prospects for many.
