The report recommends: tightening the Building Regulations; fiscal incentives for household energy efficiency measures; simplifying the planning regime for microgeneration technology; focusing new developments around transport hubs; and providing consumers with one-stop-shops on energy advice.
'The Future starts here: the route to a low carbon economy', is a Manchester University Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research report, commissioned by Friends of the Earth and the Cooperative Bank and was published on 15 September. It presents a framework showing how the UK could reduce its carbon dioxide emissions to 90% of the level that they were in 1990 by 2050 (compared to the current target of a 60% cut).
The scenario requires a "major programme" to be implemented by 2010, otherwise a 9% cut would be required each year up to 2050. It's available to download at www.foe.co.uk/resource/reports/low_carbon_economy.pdf
