The record of 10,104MW was achieved between 2 and 2.30pm yesterday, providing 23% of Britain’s total electricity demand at that time.
RenewableUK’s Executive Director Emma Pinchbeck said:
“It’s terrific to see wind power smashing another record. It shows that wind is playing an increasingly central role as a reliable part of our new modern energy system. As we install more wind power, more records will tumble. This is a Christmas clean energy bonus – not just for the renewable energy sector, but for all of us”.Follow
