UK electricity demand being generated by renewables just keeps growing

From almost a quarter in 2016 to almost a third in 2017 - the share of UK electricity demand being generated by renewables just keeps growing.

Renewable energy accounted for 29 per cent of electricity generated in the UK last year, up from a 24 per cent share in 2016.

Reduced generation from coal and gas means less imported fuel and reduced reliance on such exports. This is good news for consumers and good news for the UK generally.
