“Half of the UKâ€™s electricity came from wind turbines, solar panels, wood burning and nuclear reactors between July and September, in a milestone first.
Official figures published on Thursday show low carbon power, which has been supported by the government to meet climate change targets, accounted for 50% of electricity generation in the UK in the third quarter, up from 45.3% the year before.”
See UK hits clean energy milestone: 50% of electricity from low carbon sourcesIt’s well known that Trump hates those windmills off Scotland’s coast near his golf-course. They are contributing to the record use of renewable energy in UK, 50% at last count.
Too bad. UK is an island with lots of coast so tidal and wind generation make a lot of sense. Canada is part of a continental mass and so should probably make more use of solar generation. It’s all good. Renewable energy has been developed into a practical and economical solution to our need for energy. Combined with more efficient usage, the future of energy looks bright unless you are in the polluting business of burning fossil fuels or buying cheap golf-courses in remote places.
