More Power from Renewables

Over 54% of British electricity between July and September was from renewables or nuclear, the former providing 30% (compared with 25% in the same period of 2016).  Coal accounted for only 3% of generation.  Other records broken during 2017 include the first 24 hours without coal generation, the most wind power produced in a day, and the highest percentage (26.8%) of national demand in one day met by solar power.
