UK’s renewable generation soars by 39% year-on-year in third quarter of 2019

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy has revealed this surge in clean energy was driven by strong growth from wind and hydropower

The UK's renewable generation soared by 39% in the third quarter of 2019, up from the same period the year before.

A new statistical release from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) shows this surge in clean energy was driven by strong growth from wind and hydropower.

However, it notes indigenous energy production rose by only 0.3%, as rises in oil, bioenergy, wind and hydro output were offset by falls in power generation from coal, gas, nuclear and solar.
