Abstract

This paper presents an outline for a development stage model of the UK energy infrastructure. The model will use transition pathways as inputs to simulate the UK energy infrastructure toward 2050. Transition pathways are socio technical narratives that are used here to describe possible evolutions of the UK energy industry as it moves towards 2050 and a lower carbon economy. It is the aim of the authors to use an energy infrastructure model - based on the concept of `energy hubs' proposed elsewhere - to determine the energy infrastructure needed to facilitate the conversions and transfers of energy that will occur as the energy sector in the UK moves towards a lower carbon economy
