The UK’s Centre for Alternative Technology just released a new report showing that a Zero Carbon Britain is possible by the year 2030. The report states that the decarbonization of the UK could be achieved by increasing the country’s wind power output and other renewable energy sources – however the UK is already in danger of not meeting its 2020 energy goals due to the consequences of the global recession.
The Centre for Alternative Technology‘s Zero Carbon Britain report states that if the country makes more of an effort to promote energy efficiency, recycling and healthy living, then greenhouse gas emissions are sure to fall. There are some issues to be addressed, however – wind power initiatives in the UK have met lots of opposition – however the Centre for Alternative Technology believes that any short fall can be made up via synthetic energy sources like biomass energy crops.
