How the UK transformed its electricity supply in just a decade
“… targets to phase out coal by 2025 and largely decarbonise the grid by 2030 could be met years ahead of schedule. The grid in Great Britain recently ran for a record 18 days straight without burning coal – the first time this has happened since 1882 – and coal generates less than 5% of the mix overall.
This is the story of the policy decisions and other developments behind the UK electricity sector’s decade of transformation.”
