New British renewable energy record as wind smashes 16 gigawatt threshold

RenewableUK is highlighting a new renewable energy record set on Sunday, when wind generated more than 16 gigawatts (GW) of electricity in Britain for the first time, providing more than 40% of our power.

The record was set yesterday evening with wind generating up to 16.162GW  according to National Grid. Their data shows that overall on Sunday wind provided 43.7% of British electricity, more than double the amount that nuclear produced at 20.5%. Gas supplied 12.8%, biomass 7.9%, imports 7.4%, coal 3.1%, hydro 1.7%, solar 1.3%, storage 1.1% and other sources 0.5%.

RenewableUK’s Director of Strategic Communications Luke Clark said “This new British clean energy record is a great early Christmas present, and shows just how important wind is in an energy system that’s changing rapidly. On a dark cold Sunday when we need it most, wind was providing more than 40% of our power, far more than any other source of electricity. Wind energy is at the heart of our modern power system, enabling us to take practical action against dangerous climate change”. 

The previous wind energy record (15.32GW) was set on 8th February this year.
