Dear Candidate,
To meet the challenge of climate change the United Kingdom needs bold and urgent action.

Even as we get smarter in our individual energy use, moving to electric heating, trains and vehicles could double electricity demand by 2050, and all of this needs to be low carbon.

We must also protect our quality of life, guaranteeing affordable power for your constituents’ homes, businesses,schools and hospitals. This prompts big questions:

Do we have the means to deliver Net Zero emissions quickly?

Can we make sure our electricity supply is dependable?

Can we create a boom in ‘green jobs’ to support employment as we phase out fossil fuels?
