The first Energy Futures Lab white paper will review the evidence surrounding electricity supply security in the UK to determine whether there is a serious risk of electricity supply issues in the next five years , what the issues and concerns are and why the topic is so controversial.

During the preparation for the white paper Energy Futures Lab also produced a Scoping Note on the topic.
