Keeping the power on: our future energy technology mix


This inquiry is to look at how the energy mix of the UK needs to change in the near future and what technologies (small fission reactors, hydrogen, geothermal, tidal, wave, solar, batteries storing renewable-derived energy, and biomass) might be applied immediately to deliver a national capability to keep the power on while delivering against net zero targets. The focus would be on what on-demand generation technologies might be deployed when renewables are insufficient to meet demand. This would touch on current options needing investment in both resource and skills development and any regional variations. 

This inquiry is no longer accepting evidence

The deadline for submissions was Friday 25 August 2023.
