They cut emissions by more than 40 per cent since 1990, while their economy has grown by two thirds. By the officially information from UK government  "the level of coal generation in 2016 fell to 9%, and in the second quarter of 2017 it fell to a record low of 2%.  Over the same period low-carbon generation supplied more than 53% of electricity."
