The UK Just Went 55 Hours Without Using Coal For Power

By Brian Spaen

The United Kingdom has set a new record for electricity generation without coal. Bloomberg confirms through power grid data that the fossil fuel wasn’t used for a span of 55 hours this week. Much of the power generated came from wind turbines, and this breaks a previous record of 40 hours set in October.

London’s power stations recorded no coal being used between 10:25 PM on Monday night through 5:10 AM early Thursday morning. According to the graph, coal has been rarely tapped into from late Saturday onward. In the weekend before, coal was marginally between April 6th through the 8th.
