The UK has come a long way in tackling climate change over the last decade. The data for the last five years demonstrates decarbonisation increasing at pace, culminating in the greenest year on record for Britain’s electricity system in 2020 - average carbon intensity (the measure of CO2 emissions per unit of electricity consumed) reached a new low of 181 gCO2/kWh. In total, the country was powered coal-free for over 5,147 hours in 2020, compared with 3,666 hours in 2019, 1,856 in 2018 and 624 in 2017.

As we endure these challenging times, the climate emergency persists, and the planet continues to be threatened. Without a strong and stable economy, the funds to invest in a greener, cleaner future simply won’t be there. Even with the fall in carbon emissions, our modelling shows that the pandemic will only reduce demand through to 2050 by 8%.1
