About our DFES

This annual report creates a picture of how the energy system might look by 2050. The analysis models different 'drivers' of change; like the uptake of electric cars, low carbon heating, renewable energy or changing consumer behaviours.

The result is four 'scenario worlds', each offering a different picture of the future. We publish this as an interactive summary, a technical report, and as interactive maps. We also publish the raw data so users can create their own analysis.

The research isn't just for our drive to lowering emissions. We want to share insights with local councils, regional planning authorities, businesses, or charities to help them create their own climate action plans.
