Did you know that together, the solar panels installed on Britain’s rooftops have double the capacity of the country’s largest fossil fuel power station? Solar power is an important part of the UK’s energy mix, responsible for around 12% of renewable generation in the UK in 2020.
The majority of Britain’s renewable electricity comes from the wind. In fact, in 2020 almost a quarter of all the electricity generated came from wind turbines. And at some points during the year, wind power generated as much as 60% of our electricity.
