Zero Carbon Britain: Raising Ambition

Home » Info & Resources » Zero Carbon Britain » Zero Carbon Britain – Research Reports » Zero Carbon Britain: Raising Ambition

There is no shortage of evidence that humanity is entering a very serious place. Both data and real life stories from the ever-increasing global catalogue of extreme weather events clearly show we are heading into a climate emergency.

Fortunately, we have the technology to rise to this challenge. CAT’s Zero Carbon Britain research and other low- and zero-carbon models from across the world show how we can reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions using technology available today.

Modelling a climate safe future

Raising Ambition: Zero Carbon Scenarios from Across the Globe collects and highlights the work of hundreds of people around the world to develop snapshots and deep visions of possible futures at the global, regional, national and sub-national scales.

From Tanzania to Los Angeles, South Asia to the Baltic, we take an in-depth look at 18 case studies of scenarios. These are drawn from 130 scenarios that model net zero, deep decarbonisation, and using up to 100% renewable energy.
