UK's Offshore Wind Generates 14% More Energy in Q3 2014

According to the UK's Energy Trends and Quarterly Energy Prices published by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) today, December 18, offshore wind energy generation rose by 14.1 per cent compared to the same period last year. 

Renewables’ share of electricity generation increased from 13.6 per cent in the third quarter of 2013, to 17.8 per cent in the third quarter of 2014.

Renewable electricity capacity was 23.1 GW at the end of the third quarter of 2014, a rise of 19 per cent (3.8 GW) on a year earlier. Half of this increase was due to, mainly large-scale, solar photovoltaics, while onshore and offshore wind contributed 1.5 GW.
