Wind Generated 35% Of British Electricity Last Week

Wind energy accounted for 35% of Great Britain’s electricity generation for the week running Friday 8 March to Thursday 14 March, beating out all other generation sources, and also saw offshore wind beat out nuclear energy. RenewableUK, the country’s renewable energy trade body representing wind and hydro technologies, published figures last Friday from independent analysts Aurora Energy Research which showed that wind energy provided 35.6% of Great Britain’s electricity for the 7 days starting Friday 8 March. (Note: Great Britain, as distinct from the United Kingdom, as these figures do not include Ireland.) Further, offshore wind provided 21.4% of Great Britain’s electricity, beating out nuclear energy which provided 21.3%.
