Fossil fuels and nuclear energy continue to dominate the fuel mix for electricity production despite their risk of environmental impact. This impact was reduced during the 1990s with relatively clean natural gas becoming the main choice of fuel for new plants, in particular at the expense of oil. Production from coal and lignite has increased slightly in recent years. The steep increase in overall electricity production has also counteracted some of the environmental benefits from fuel switching.
