Wind generated more electricity than coal in 2016
Despite government cuts to renewables in the UK, wind outstripped coal over the entire year of 2016. Solar did well too.
Now, it’s not simply a case that more wind powered electricity is being generated, there has also been a steep decline in coal powered generation.
The article goes into a lot more detail and I do suggest you read it if you are interested, as it is a little more complex than I have described.
Still, the future is definitely starting to look greener!
