We believe Great Britain’s progress towards decarbonisation of its energy system can offer a blueprint to other countries around the world. In 1990, 65% of the UK’s electricity was produced by burning coal. Fast forward to 2021 and we’re four years away from being able to operate the grid at 100% zero carbon – without using any fossil fuels at all. It’s an exciting time and getting to this position has been a huge team effort from everyone across the entire energy industry. Our new report charts the story of that period of change in Great Britain. It shows that low carbon grids are achievable and reliable, and you can take an energy system with little renewable generation and transform it into a cleaner and greener system with deliverable plans for zero carbon operation.
