The capacity of renewable energy in the United Kingdom has now outweighed the country’s capacity of fossil fuels by a small margin.

Renewable sources of energy, like solar- and wind-power, reached a capacity of 41.9 gigawatts between July and September, while non-renewable sources stayed at 41.2 gigawatts.

The UK has been making steady progress towards increasing its use of clean energy and inching away from its previous dependence on fossil fuels,

Fossil fuels often negatively impact the environment. Everything from the extraction of gas and oil to the emissions from its use damage our atmosphere and soil in some way. With clean energy becoming more and more prevalent, hope lies in major countries like the United Kingdom moving away from fossil fuels completely.
