A statement from the Secretary of State on the death of DECC's former Chief Scientific Advisor, Sir David Mackay.
15 April 2016
“David was the model of a scientist in government; challenging, insightful and with the ability to explain the most complex subjects in a clear way.
His legacy, including the 2050 calculator now emulated across the world and his brilliant book on sustainable energy, was deservedly recognised by a knighthood earlier this year. His ideas and arguments will continue to influence how we deal with climate change.”
