Energy Economics - UK Electricity Use Falls
Some comparative analysis of European energy use, with the UK seeing a 9% reduction in use over the last seven years, as the rest of the EU is still seeing rises. There were a number of reasons posited for this including slower economic growth in many Euro Zone countries, mild weather and increased energy efficiency.
Furthermore, the article notes that "for the first time across the EU, renewable sources of power, excluding hydro, overtook coal. Together, wind, solar and biomass accounted for 20.9% of the union’s electricity mix in 2017, up from 9.7% in 2010."
