The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) produces regular updated projections of energy demand, supply and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We would like kindly to refer you to the latest published DECC emissions projections which were produced in June 2010-link attached: http://www.deec.gov.uk/en/content/cms/statistics/projections/projections.aspx.

These projections set out what Government expect emissions to be from each economic sector and the associated emissions savings from all policies prior to the publication of the coalition programme. An updated version of the projections will be published in the autumn and help inform the Government's updated Carbon Plan.
