How much environmental tech is currently used in the UK?

In 2020, renewable electricity generation, which came from wind, sunlight, water and wood, outperformed fossil fuels for the first time ever, generating 43% of the UK’s electricity compared to 38.5% generated by fossil fuels. 

In 2021 overall it was on par with fossil fuels. Despite the pandemic electric car sales increased considerably taking 18.5% of the market in 2021, a big increase on any previous years.

The UK government have ambitious plans to net zero carbon by 2050, ICT and digital services have a big part to play in these plans.

Recent changes have allowed many more Government employees to work from home due to the available tech and thus reducing the carbon footprint for now and for the future.
