Britain is one of the best locations for wind power in the world. Today the contribution of wind may be small but this low carbon, renewable source is growing.
The first civil nuclear programme was British. Nuclear generation of electricity provides a steady flow of low carbon energy that helps to tackle climate change.
Coal is still a significant energy source for the UK but we will become less dependent on coal in the future as we develop alternative lower carbon energy sources.
Gas is often the major source of power in this country and is seen as a cleaner, more efficient fossil fuel than oil or coal.
Minority sources for electricity generation include oil, hydro, biomass and the interconnectors through which we trade electricity with our European neighbours.
