UK on track to phase-out coal by 2025 without the need for any new large gas plants: WWF report

Offshore wind will provide most of the growth from 2017 to 2025, the report suggests, but HMG could and should also use onshore wind and solar, and accelerate storage. “95% of the required renewables growth to replace coal is already contracted or under construction, the Government has promised additional funding for the remainder.”

I predict this will prove easier than even this excellent report (written by Sandbag.org) suggests – seven years is a long time in modern energy markets.
