Wind outpaced fossil fuels and any other renewable energy source in power generation last weekend.
The National Grid ESO said on Sunday, wind turbines across the UK produced 39.6% of British electricity, more than gas 22%, nuclear 20.6%, solar 8.1%, imports 6%, biomass 1.9% and hydro 1.1%.
It said the share of coal in Britain’s power mix was zero during the day.
In February, the grid’s carbon intensity fell to the lowest point ever recorded, according to the National Grid ESO.
