Zero Carbon Britain

Zero Carbon Britain is the flagship research project from the Centre for Alternative Technology, showing that a modern, zero-emissions society is possible using technology available today.

Our work clearly demonstrates that we already have the tools and technology needed to efficiently power the UK with 100% renewable energy, to feed ourselves sustainably and play our part in leaving a safe and habitable climate for our children and future generations.

Zero Carbon Britain: Rising to the Climate Emergency explores how we can achieve what is necessary. Our updated scenario describes one possible future end point in which the UK has actually risen to the challenges of the 21st century.
