Energy Seminar - Week 7 TT24: Beyond 2030: A national blueprint for a decarbonised electricity system in Great Britain

The ESO (Electricity System Operator) published a plan called “Beyond 2030” in March 2024. This plan outlines an ambitious investment of over £58bn in transmission infrastructure up until 2030. The goal of this plan is to connect approximately 85GW of offshore wind capacity and facilitate the transition to a zero carbon electricity system. The seminar will delve into the background, decision-making processes, outcomes, and future steps related to achieving a zero carbon electricity system, which is a crucial component of the future net zero economy.
