Greenest Ever Year for GB Electricity Generation 2017
According to the National Grid figures, reported by WWF recently, the GB electricity was the “greenest” ever.
For the first time, wind, nuclear and solar power generated more than gas and coal combined in June last year breaking 13 clean energy records. Since 2012, Britain has halved it’s carbon emissions and is now the 4th cleanest power system in Europe and the 7th Worldwide.
Despite this carbon emissions for 2017, which averaged 275g/kWh, were still someway from the 2030 target of 100g/kWh. Further data can be found at MyGridGB
There are many ways we can impact our carbon footprints at home & at work from simple things like turning off lights, controlling heating systems, insulating our properties to investing in renewable energy & electric cars.
