Daily Mail - Science & tech 

Britain will produce more electricity from zero carbon energy sources sources than fossil fuels in 2019, experts from the National Grid predict. If true, this will be the first time since the Industrial Revolution that this has been the case, they say. The feat will be achieved through greater reliance on cleaner energy sources, it's claimed - including wind, solar, nuclear and hydro power Britain will produce more electricity from zero carbon energy sources sources than fossil fuels in 2019, experts from the National Grid predict. Experts from the National Grid, based in London, analysed annual power generation data from the last decade to make the finding. Britain's energy system is in the midst of a rapid and complex transformation, with the government recently announcing that it aims to go'net zero' on emissions.
