Wind Powers Record UK Renewable Output (Int'l. Report)
UK Wind
Date: 2020-03-18
In the UK, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS)is reporting renewable electricity generation increased 16 pct year-on-year in the third quarter of 2019.

The increase is partially due to the startup of HornSea One, the world's largest offshore wind project with 174 turbines. The rapid increase in capacity meant that renewable output overtook the share of generation from gas for the first time, setting a new record and providing a commercial basis for more investment.

"Wind remains the principal source of renewable generation. For the first time offshore wind had a larger share of renewable generation than onshore wind with 25.1 pct and 23.7 pct respectively," according to a BEIS statement.
