Net Zero Devon, Plymouth and Torbay Report

The Centre for Energy and the Environment at the University of Exeter was commissioned to provide quantified projections of carbon emissions for Plymouth, Torbay and the area administered by Devon County Council following a “business as usual” path, and a separate path following the national policies as suggested by the Committee on Climate Change to achieve netzero by 2050. To assess the impact of targeting an earlier date for net-zero, further work was undertaken to assess how Devon may be able to meet the target by 2030.
