Britain goes for a record 55 hours without coal power relying on gas, wind, nuclear, solar, and biomass



Britain went a record 55 hours without using electricity made with coal.
Instead the nation was powered by electricity made from gas, wind, nuclear, solar, and biomass.
The 55-hour, coal-free period ran from 10.25pm on Monday until 5.10am yesterday. 
The UK is trying to get rid of coal-fired generation by 2025 to protect the environment.
Yorkshire power station Drax has been converting power stations to run on biomass, which is a type of wood chip, instead.
