UK Breaks Clean Energy Record , Controversy over Nuclear Continues

Renewable energy supplied a quarter of the United Kingdom’s electricity needs last year, surpassing coal for the first time.

Data from the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy show that nuclear power supplied an additional 21 percent while coal’s share of the energy mix fell to just 22 percent.

Controversy over nuclear development continues after the government made a surprise announcement yesterday to postpone its decision on the Hinkley Point C nuclear plant until the fall. This came just hours after the French utility EDF finally approved a plan to build the reactor. The Hinkley project has been in talks for ten years and, if built, would be Britain’s first nuclear plant in two decades. (Energy Mix: Press Association, Telegraph $, Climate Home, BusinessGreen. Hinkley Project: Financial Times $, Guardian, Telegraph $, Times $, New York Times $, Bloomberg, BBC. Commentary: Guardian, Simon Jenkins column; Financial Times, Nick Butler column; Carbon Brief, Simon Evans analysis, Guardian editorial)

For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
