    Energy Trends

    March 2014 (UK Department of Energy and Climate Change)

    “…Electricity generated in 2013 fell by 2 per cent, from 363.8 TWh a year earlier to 356.7 TWh…Low carbon electricity’s share of generation increased from 31 per cent in 2012 to 35 per cent in 2013, due to higher renewables and nuclear generation…Of electricity generated in 2013, coal accounted for 36 per cent (a fall of 3 percentage points on 2012) and gas 27 per cent (a fall of 1 percentage point on 2012), gas’ lowest share since 1996, due to high gas prices. Nuclear’s share increased by less than 1 percentage point on 2012 to 20 per cent of the total. Renewables’ share of generation increased by 4 percentage points on 2012 to a record 15 per cent…Renewable electricity generation was 52.8 TWh in 2013, an increase of 28 per cent on the 41.3 TWh in 2012, with wind generation up 40 per cent. Renewable electricity capacity was 19.4 GW at the end of 2013, a 25 per cent increase (3.9 GW) on a year earlier…Provisional estimates show that carbon dioxide emissions fell between 2012 and 2013; the key factor driving the change was a switch in electricity generation away from fossil fuels…” click here for more
