Report: UK Wind Energy Capacity Grew By 38% In 2013

Share

The wind energy sector in the UK is continuing to grow at a respectable pace, based on the most recent figures from the Department of Energy and Climate Change DECC. Wind power rose to provide about 7.7% of the UK’s electricity in 2013 — up from 5.5% in 2012, a 38% year-on-year increase.Other interesting stats from the new report include the fact that low-carbon electricity provided nearly one-third of all the electricity generated in the UK last year — largely down to a surge in wind power output. To be exact, low-carbon power represented 32.7% of the electricity supplied last year, up from 29.4% the previous year.
