About the report
The Low Carbon Technology Assessment, published in 2002, was commissioned to help the Carbon Trust make best use of its investment resource. It gives guidance on those technology groups with substantial potential for carbon emissions reduction and where investment by the Carbon Trust can make a material difference to the technology's progress towards commercialisation given other public/private sector funding.
Work undertaken in 2003 developed the findings of the Low Carbon Technology Assessment in the specific area of renewable power technologies in order to inform the Carbon Trust's approach to investment in this area. This report summarises the key findings of this work.
