Renewable energy records set in 2016






Is there going to come a day when renewable energy production can out strip the rest.

If the data released recently is evidential, the argument could be, things are looking good.

  • Thanks to renewables the need for electricity from coal fired power stations was down 13.6% for 2016 in comparison to the previous year.
  • Solar Panels supplied more electricity than coal from mid spring through to autumn.
  • And in one twenty four hour period solar power totally replaced coal generation.
  • Renewables scored in the 40% range when it came to supplying electricity on Christmas Day.

What more can we achieve if the government, industry, and the people put their minds to it.
