How would you meet our carbon emission targets by 2050?


An online simulation developed for DECC gives the public the chance to make the big decisions about the UK’s energy future. Would you build more nuclear power stations, generate energy from biomass CHP, or put solar panels on every roof?, the choice is yours as long as you can hit the 2050 target to reduce carbon emissions by 80% while keeping the lights on.


My2050 is a user-friendly web application designed to let the public have a go at making the choices we face when it comes to moving to a secure, low-carbon economy. To create your own solution to lowering CO2 emissions by 2050 click on the following link: My2050
