According to power group Drax, Christmas Day 2016 was the greenest on record for energy generation in the UK. 

The company confirmed that more than 40% of the electricity generated on the day was generated from renewable sources. Figures produced by Electric Insights revealed three-quarters of renewable energy produced on Christmas Day were sourced from wind turbines. 

Andy Koss, chief executive of Drax Power, said: “These Christmas figures show that the UK energy system really is changing. Renewables are increasingly vital to the UK’s energy mix as we decarbonise and move away from coal.”
