Electricity generation shares in the United Kingdom (UK) 1996 to 2017, by source This graph illustrates the share of electricity generation in the United Kingdom (UK) from 1996 to 2017, by source. It shows that the share of electricity generated from coal has been decreasing significantly over this period, dropping from a share of 42.2 percent in 1996 to just seven percent by 2017. This coincides with the increasing share of renewable electricity generation, which combined with nuclear electricity generation had a share of more than 50 percent for the first time ever in 2017.
In 2017, just under 100 terawatt hours of electricity was generated through renewable sources, with onshore wind generating 28.7 terawatt hours.
