Net Zero Devon, Plymouth and Torbay Report

The Centre for Energy and the Environment at the University of Exeter was commissioned to provide 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 implications of targeting an earlier date for net-zero, this study also considered how Devon may be able to meet the target by 2030 and the costs of doing so.

Individual reports for Torbay, Plymouth and the Devon County Council area are also available.
