Crucial role for wind energy - 3rd August
New Government statistics show onshore and offshore wind energy is playing a crucial role in securing clean energy supplies for the UK, according to RenewableUK. Statistics from DECC indicate that electricity from renewables increased by 21% in 2014 and accounted for 19.1% of total UK electricity generation.
Onshore wind is described by DECC as "the leading individual technology for the generation of electricity from renewable sources during 2014". Onshore wind supplied 29% of the total with offshore wind supplying an additional 21%. A total of 50% of renewable electricity was therefore supplied by wind in 2014.
