Where can I find analysis on the potential for improved energy efficiency to displace the need for additional nuclear power? (August 2016)

Hink3The Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit published a report on 26 August 2016 which investigates what the options are if UK plans for the Hinkley Point C nuclear power station do not materialise.

The options analysed include replacing Hinkley’s output by increasing wind power capacity, providing additional interconnector capacity, and improving energy efficiency and our demand side response. The authors find that “At the bare minimum, two-fifths of Hinkley’s annual 25.2 TWh output of electricity could be replaced by improving energy efficiency above business-as-usual.”
