# More Signs the Renewable Market is the Way Forward!

Progress for the renewable sector is evident as coal provided just 2% of the UK’s energy demand for the first half of 2017. This figure, published by Imperial College London, is even more startling when it’s compared to the same period 5 years ago when coal was generating more than 40% of the demand.

With pollution laws and carbon taxes making coal less profitable, the drive towards making the planet and its environment more sustainable should hopefully continue.
