Unbelievable similarity between the UK’s and US’s electricity production

Following on from our post which compared the electricity production in France to the UK, which showed the huge investment France has put into nuclear power, this month we have compared the United Kingdom with the United States, and they are almost identical.

Putting aside that the United States produces a lot more electricity than the United Kingdom, due to it being a larger country, the percentages of both country’s electricity production portfolio are very similar. Both countries have a huge emphasis of coal and gas, showing they are still very dependant on fossil fuels.
