UK renewables generate new record 47% of energy in Q1 2020

Between January and March, low-carbon forms of generation such as wind, solar, nuclear and biomass, accounted for 62.1% of national output, up from the previous record of 51.8%. Renewables alone accounted for 47% of generation, up from the previous record of 39%, with offshore wind leading the way.

RenewableUK’s head of policy and regulation Rebecca Williams said the trends “write very large indeed” the extent and pace of the nation’s low-carbon energy transition.
