Where does electricity come from?

About two thirds of the electricity in the UK is generated by burning coal and gas in power stations. This releases millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide, the main gas responsible for climate change. Of the remaining electricity, around a quarter of the total comes from nuclear power stations, with just a few percentage points from renewable sources such as hydro, wind or solar.

The facts

As our fossil fuels are been depleted we have to come to terms that unless we act soon we could be facing serious consequences. Electricity prices are now reaching the highest on record at a rate of 17.294p per kwH.
