Where Does our Energy Come From?

Every country's energy supply is different due to the natural resources they have available. The UK currently relies on 62% of its energy being imported making us reliant on some politically unstable parts of the world. Given the UK is an island nation and has consistent winds, there's a big opportunity to not only switch to clean, renewable energy, but also switch to sources generated in the UK, thereby making our supply safer and more secure.
