Britain has to solve its heating problem to meet its ambitious climate goals – CNN

London (CNN Business)The United Kingdom made history last year when it became the first major economy to commit to pumping no more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than it removes by 2050.

Dozens of countries have since followed its lead to achieve “net zero” emissions, and with three decades to go before the deadline, Britain’s progress provides a promising blueprint.
Its carbon emissions were 44% below 1990 levels in 2018, with renewable energy now accounting for 33% of its energy mix and coal contributing just over 5%. That is thanks in large part to its success with offshore wind and focus on nuclear energy.
