Wind farms set new record

National Grid ESO has confirmed that UK wind farms generated a record 17.3GW on 18 December, beating the previous record high of 17.1GW which was generated on 2 January 2020.

When the new record was set wind was generating 43.2 per cent of Britain’s electricity, meaning that although a new absolute record was set, as a proportion of the energy mix the record still stands from August.

None-the-less, ESO also stated that 74 per cent of the UK’s electricity was zero carbon (wind, nuclear and biomass) at the time.
