The U.K. just went 55 hours without using coal for the first time.

No coal was used for power generation in the U.K. between 54 hours and 50 minutes.



 

According to an article from Carbon Brief:

“Coal now accounts for only 5.3 percent of total primary energy consumed in the UK, down from 22 percent in 1995. The total carbon dioxide emissions are as low as emissions were back in 1890.”
