Most of the UK’s electricity this year came from renewable sources.

That’s according to a new report from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, which suggests the proportion of the power mix from low carbon technologies grew from 50.2% to 54.4%.

Meanwhile, coal and gas generation fell to just 42% of generation, a record low.
