There is an energy transition going on in Europe. In some parts of Europe we are witnessing things that were unimaginable few decades ago. As one of the cradles of industrial revolution, Scotland, mainly powered by coal, in March of this year permanently stopped using coal in electricity production after 115 years. The high cost resulting from combination of old age, rising transmission costs and higher carbon taxes brought to what can be seen as the end of an era. The missing energy in their case will be covered by nuclear and gas plants, as well as renewable energy, particularly wind.
