Table 2 Description of the five scenarios run as part of the accelerated technology development (ATD) scenarios.

From: How can accelerated development of bioenergy contribute to the future UK energy mix? Insights from a MARKAL modelling exercise

Scenario Description
ATD Bioenergy All five bioenergy technologies were accelerated together. No acceleration of any other technologies
LC-Acctech (60%) without fuel cells All technologies (wind, marine, bioenergy, solar PV, coal CCS, and nuclear) accelerated together to achieve a 60% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050
LC-Acctech (80%) without fuel cells All technologies (wind, marine, bioenergy, solar PV, coal CCS, and nuclear) accelerated together to achieve an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050
LC-Acctech (60%) with fuel cells All technologies (wind, marine, bioenergy, solar PV, coal CCS, nuclear and fuel cells) accelerated together to achieve a 60% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050
LC-Acctech (80%) with fuel cells All technologies (wind, marine, bioenergy, solar PV, coal CCS, nuclear and fuel cells) accelerated together to achieve an 80% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050
