The government has today released its updated fuel mix disclosure tables, which outlines the full sources of UK electricity supply between May 2015 – March 2016
Responding to the release of today’s updated electricity fuel mix and the news that renewables are, for the first time, the second largest source of UK electricity, Good Energy chief executive Juliet Davenport OBE said:
“The idea that renewables are an unimportant part of our energy mix is now firmly a myth. They are leading the way when it comes to cleaning up the UK’s energy, making up over 24% of our electricity supply, having trebled in the last five years.
“With renewables by far the most popular choice for the British public, this new government needs to look at this success and take the lead in keeping us on the path to decarbonisation.”
