Description The research project has contributed to policy formulation by informing the development of sections of the UK's Committee on Climate Change's 5th Carbon Budget. The information fed directly into a barriers matrix which has been developed to translate maximum technical potential for mitigation technologies into scenarios of feasible potential. The outputs of this research materially impacted on the analysis.
