The United Kingdom has said it is playing its in striving for a cleaner and greener . For the first time since the Industrial Revolution in the 18th and 19th , the UK is being powered more by zero-carbon than fossil fuels. In of the first five months of 2019, fossil fuels have produced less than half of the UK's electricity. Analysts say a "tipping " has been reached and the trend of zero-carbon energy sources providing more power than fossil fuels will continue. Power from wind, , nuclear and hydro sources outstripped coal and gas-fired . A decade ago, three quarters (75.6 per cent) of the UK's came from coal and gas, and only 22.3 per cent was zero .

The to more zero-carbon power was described by the UK's energy executive as a "key on the journey towards net zero". CEO John Pettigrew said the zero-carbon should increase to 90 per cent by the 2030s. The UK's Prime Minister Theresa May has made a to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This would make the UK the first economy to do so. Energy analyst Tom Burke told the BBC: "Today's landmark is a real to technologists. We have cracked problems of dealing with climate change." He added: "As we move towards zero, jobs will be lost in fossil fuel and created in low-carbon industries."
