Coal demand

Reducing demand for coal

On the right track

According to Carbon Brief:

“Nearly half of the UK’s electricity came from renewables and nuclear in 2015, while fossil fuel’s share of energy supplies hit a record low.”

Continuing decline in coal use

The big success story here is the continuing decline in coal use, which according toCarbon Brief was down 21% in a year and just one quarter of the amount used in 1970.

“The fall in coal use means it reached a new nadir, having already dropped to levels not seen since the industrial revolution.”
