UK Lawmakers Warn of ‘Disorderly’ Transition to Net-Zero Goals

  • Lords committee calls for detailed emissions-reduction plan
  • Government must increase pace of energy efficiency measures

The British government needs to publish detailed plans on decarbonizing the economy if it wants to prevent a “disorderly” transition to net-zero emissions by 2050, members of Parliament’s upper chamber said Thursday.  

Specific details are needed by the government on what’s required to safeguard energy supply and to generate confidence that it will follow though with goals to eliminate carbon emissions by mid-century, the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee said in a report.
