This paper summarises the results of a scenario workshop held in July 2001. The workshop was held as part of an ongoing Tyndall Centre research project which is aiming to assess the consequences for the electricity distribution network of the Government's 2010 targets for renewable energy and CHP. The scenario exercise was designed to explore the possible future development of renewable energy and CHP in the UK to 2020. Its results will inform the technical, economic and regulatory analysis of distribution networks to be conducted in subsequent stages of the parent project. The scenario exercise was conducted in two parts. The first focused on the international and national policy context in which UK renewables and CHP capacity might develop. The second sought to quantify the contribution of renewables and CHP to UK electricity supply, and identify those renewable energy technologies that might be dominant.
