- Decarbonising the grid requires far less land than previously feared
- Installing solar panels should be a requirement of planning permission for all car parks, new buildings and major renovations in Sussex
More than half of solar panels required to hit government net-zero targets could be fitted on rooftops and car parks according to a major new report.
Research commissioned by CPRE and carried out by the UCL Energy Institute found decarbonising the grid requires far less land than previously feared.
