Another new wind energy record set on Bank Holiday

Figures from National Grid show that British wind farms set a new record during the Bank Holiday by generating a new high of 17.6GW at 3.30pm providing 48.4 per cent of Britain’s electricity and beating the previous record of 17.5GW set on 13 February.

RenewableUK’s deputy chief executive Melanie Onn said: “The fact that wind is generating nearly half the country’s electricity shows how central it has become in our modern energy system. The UK’s healthy pipeline of wind energy projects set to be built onshore and offshore will help us to reach the Government’s target of net-zero emissions as fast as possible, and as we ramp up our renewable energy capacity, we can expect fresh records in the years ahead”.
