Greenest year ever

I am delighted that the UK is leading the world in clean growth, reducing emissions faster than any other G7 country.

A BBC web site reported today that the UK has achieved its greenest year ever in terms of how the nation's electricity is generated,. The figures are produced by National Grid. It also revelaed that he rise of renewable energy helped break 13 clean energy records in 2017. In June, for the first time, wind, nuclear and solar power generated more UK power than g...as and coal combined.

Britain has halved carbon emissions in the electricity sector since 2012 to provide the fourth cleanest power system in Europe.

British wind farms produced more electricity than coal plants on more than 75% of days this year.
