Nearly 12% of UK electricity from renewable sources

The amount of electricity generated from renewable sources in the UK was 11.7% in the third quarter of 2012, up from 9.1% in the same period last year. This increase was mainly due to the increased capacity of wind energy in the UK.

RenewableUK commented that “British homes and businesses are now getting more than 10% of their electricity from renewables on a regular basis, as these figures show. Wind is generating the lion’s share of our clean electricity, and is set to become even more important in our energy mix for the rest of this decade.”
