"Where we should be going"

The roadmaps are a collection of documents summarizing the problems to be overcome before new technologies can be commercially viable, classified by IEA Energy Category

Many of the roadmaps are characterisations of energy technology roadmaps relevant to the UK according to a number of criteria relating to structure, outputs and process. For each roadmap, key forward actions are identified.
