    New Energy Beats Nuclear In The UK

    Wind and solar make more electricity than nuclear for first time in UK; In 2017 Britain’s greenhouse gas emissions also fell 3% as coal use dropped and renewables climbed

    Adam Vaughan, 29 March 2018 (UK Guardian)

    “Windfarms and solar panels produced more electricity than the UK’s eight nuclear power stations for the first time at the end of last year…[and] Britain’s greenhouse gas emissions also continued to fall, dropping 3% in 2017, as coal use fell and the use of renewables climbed…Energy experienced the biggest drop in emissions of any UK sector, 8%, while pollution from transport and businesses stayed flat…Energy industry chiefs said the figures showed that the government should rethink its ban on onshore wind subsidies, a move that ministers have hinted could happen soon…Across the whole year, low-carbon sources of power – wind, solar, biomass and nuclear – provided a record 50.4% of electricity, up from 45.7% in 2016…But in the fourth quarter of 2017, high wind speeds, new renewables installations and lower nuclear output saw wind and solar becoming the second biggest source of power for the first time…” click here for more
