There are still quite a few coal fire power plants left in the UK, however it is declining. There are about 19 coal fired power plants which are still left in the UK.

What percentage of electricity in the US is produced by oil burning power plants?

In 2010, less than 1% of the electricity generated in the US was produced by oil burning power plants. Hawaii and Florida are the states where most of the oil burning power plants are located. This likely is because the the energy source, oil, is cheaper to transport to distant offshore locations than other sources, like gas or coal. 19.3% of electricity in the US was produced by nuclear fission in 2005. 49.7% came from coal-fired power plants, 18.7% from natural gas, 6.5% from hydroelectric, and other minor contributions from other sources. See the source of this information under the Web Link to the left.


Where is coal energy found?

Coal energy is present in coal. There are two types of coal: bituminous, or 'soft' coal, and anthracite coal, or hard coal. Coal is a hard rocky substance that is the left-over carbon from huge amounts of plants from ages past which died, and have been covered over by sometimes thousands of feet of rock and dirt.

How much more efficient is nuclear power than coal power?

There could be different ways to address efficiency, but the most meaningful way would be the ratio of energy spent in order to produce the energy generated..Both coal fired plants and nuclear plants lose some heat in the generation process - not all of the heat generated converts into electrical power. Coal generates approximately 6.67 kW-h of electrical energy per kilogram1, whereas uranium generates 360,000 kW-h of electrical energy per kilogram2. That means it takes nearly 54,000 kG of coal to generate the same amount of energy as 1 kG of uranium. The good thing about using kG per kW-h is that ratio already factors in all the inefficiencies of the power generation itself, so the only thing left to consider is the energy spent to get the coal and uranium to the power plants..Mining requies energy itself, but so does transportation to the electrical generating site. It stands to reason that, since coal is transported in bulk, it is uses less energy to mine and transport than uranium. Let's assume that it costs 1000 times as much energy (not money, but actual energy) to mine and transfer 1 kG of uranium than it does 1 kG of coal. The energy efficiency of uranium would then be approximately 50 times better that that of coal..1 Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal2 Source: http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/inf02.html
