UK moves at ever increasing speed towards carbon free generation

On Easter Monday Britain produced 80% of electricity from carbon neutral sources, 10% was generated by gas powered power stations with the other 10% coming from biomass and imported electricity. There was no electricity generated from coal. The 80% of energy generation from zero carbon was down to solar power and wind power which was due to the combination of sunny weather and blustery conditions. Nuclear power generation made up 16% of the 80%.

Although this is only one day it proves that the UK is moving at an ever increasing speed towards moving away from the use of fossil fuel generation and harnessing renewable power sources with a target of carbon free generation by 2025.

Although this is good news for our planet, more work needs to be done to ensure that the UK has a fully sustainable and secure energy generation for the future without the reliance on imported gas and oil.
