How The UK Transformed Its Electricity Supply In Just A Decade by Carbon Brief

How has the UK – cradle of the industrial revolution – nearly ended its reliance on coal?

Carbon Brief tells this story of unprecedented change in a scrolling graphical narrative that maps every UK power plant, each year since 2008. Drawing on six databases melded in Python and visualised with D3 and MapboxGL, it maps the shift from a handful of coal-fired giants towards hundreds of windfarms and thousands of solar rooftops.
