The UK is playing its in working towards a cleaner and planet. For the first since the Industrial Revolution in the 19th , more of the UK's energy is from zero-carbon fuels than fuels. In each of the first five months of 2019, fossil fuels produced less than of the UK's electricity. A " point" has been reached and the trend of using more zero-carbon energy than fossil fuels will continue. Power from wind, solar, nuclear and sources will outstrip coal and gas. A decade ago, three of the UK's electricity came from fossil fuels.
The UK's energy chief said the use of more renewables was a " milestone on the towards net zero". He said the zero-carbon share should increase to 90 per cent by the 2030s. The UK's Prime Minister said the UK would reach net zero carbon by 2050. The UK would be the first economy to do this. An energy told the BBC that the milestone was a to technologists who solved the technical problems of climate change. He said net zero means will be lost in fossil fuel and created in -carbon industries.
