The UK is using more green energy, like wind, nuclear and solar energy. It is using fewer fossil fuels. New figures show that 2017 was the UK's greenest year ever for electricity. It also had its first coal-free day for 150 years and broke 13 clean energy records. In June, wind, nuclear and solar power produced more electricity than gas and coal for the first time. The UK's power system is now the seventh cleanest in the world.

The UK wants to use less coal, which supplies less than 7 per cent of its electricity. It also wants to use less gas to meet greenhouse gas targets. The UK uses too much gas. A charity is happy that the UK is becoming greener. It said: "We have never been cleaner or greener, and we are on [target] for an even better year in 2018." It added: "Climate change is [damaging] our nature and wildlife, but we are…turning our backs on…fossil fuels [for a] clean future."
