Britain green record

Britain records greenest day ever over easter

On Easter Monday, the UK’s electricity came from nearly 80% renewable energy.

This is the highest on record so far. It is important because the UK has pledged that all our energy will be produced this way by 2030.

The weather was windy and sunny and so 60% came from wind energy and solar energy and 20% came from nuclear power.
