  • Use of renewable energy reaches record levels

    Renewable energy is playing a key part when it comes to fuelling homes and commercial premises, according to the latest set of statistics released from the Department of Energy and Climate change.

    The figures indicate that nearly a quarter of the U.K.’s energy in 2015 was produced by renewable energy sources. Solar output is on the increase, as is bioenergy, and a small rise in hydro generation of 2.6% was recorded too.

    One of the most significant changes was in the increasing use of wind power. According to the figures, 26% of electricity in the UK is now produced by wind power, which is the equivalent of 9.8 million homes. The figures also demonstrate a surge in the use of offshore wind power generation; the escalation in wind power generation is due to the enhanced onshore and offshore capacity following the opening of several new wind farms, including Westermost Rough.

    Positive effect on Fuel Bills

    The rise in the use of renewable energy is also having a positive effect on the cost of fuel bills, with the data showing household electricity bills have fallen by an average of 8% because of the reduction in cost for energy and a reduced demand.

    Increase in energy production

    In total, energy production was more than 14% higher for 2014; this was due to the increased production in gas, oil, primary electricity and bioenergy. Moreover, the energy trends report showed that the production of natural gas was 8% higher

    The increase in primary electricity is due to a larger nuclear output and more fields being opened, while a reduced need for maintenance led to the higher production of gas and oil.

    Fall in fossil fuels

    With the drive to reduce dependence on less environmentally friendly forms of power generation and towards renewable energy, the latest Energy Trends data report showed a fall of 3.8% since late 2014 in the use of fossil fuels.

    Commenting on the figures, Maf Smith, Deputy Chief Executive for Energy UK, said:

    “These excellent figures show that renewable energy is delivering huge amounts of clean electricity right now, and that overall energy costs are coming down – including wind energy

    “Putting the consumer first means putting renewables first. As old coal turns off, renewables are quietly taking its place, delivering energy security and value for money. It makes more sense than ever to fully support and take advantage of our natural resources”.

  • Wind energy power reaches record levels

    Britain’s dependence on wind power is growing from strength to strength, according to figures recently issued by the National Grid.

    The statistics, which have been detailed on the Renewable UK website, indicate that wind power reached record levels in the UK in 2015, and that 11% of the UK’s electricity was produced from onshore and offshore wind power sources last year. This is an increase from 9.5% in 2014.

    In December 2015, a new record was set when 17% of electrical power was supplied through wind power; December was also the month when a new weekly record was set, with 20% of electricity being provided by wind power.

    The quarterly records from October to December also saw a minor increase from 12% in 2014 to 13% in 2015. Moreover, the statistics show that 5.8% of the wind power came from onshore sources while 5.2% was from offshore.

    According to the figures, wind power is now supplying enough energy to fuel more than 8 million households in United Kingdom.

    Commenting on the new statistics, Dr Gordon Edge, director of policy for Renewable UK, said:

    “This is a great way to start the new year – the wind industry can be proud that it has shattered weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual generation records in 2015. This re-writes the record books. We’ve had a bumper harvest thanks to increased deployment and superb wind speeds.

    “It also demonstrates why the Government should continue to support wind energy, as we’re delivering on our commitment to keep Britain powered up. We can continue to increase the proportion of the nation’s electricity which we provide as we move away from fossil fuels to clean sources of power”.

    Wind power investment

    In further positive news for the renewable energy sector, Dong Energy, a leading company in the offshore wind sector, has announced plans for significant investment in this form of power in the coming years.

    UK Energy Policy

    The figures from the National Grid, and the announcement from Dong Energy, should be viewed as good news by the government as the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate change, Amber Rudd, recently made a speech regarding the changes to the UK’s energy policy.

    Despite the cuts in wind power subsidies, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate change said that the government expected 10 gigawatts of wind power to be installed in the UK by 2020, however, Amber Rudd also made it clear that continued support for the wind power industry would be conditional and it was dependent on significant cost reductions.
