The study can be obtained from the Renewable Energy Foundation website from midday on November 4th 2020.

To accompany the release of the study, the Renewable Energy Foundation will host a Webinar on November 4th 2020 at 11.00 am at which Professor Gordon Hughes will be the main speaker. He will present the main findings of his study and answer questions on his work.
