Wind Power Generation hits Record High

Wind-generated power reached over 10GW for the first time ever in the UK, and it didn’t stop there.

The landmark moment came on 17th January when Drax Electric Insights claimed that wind generation peaked at 13.5GW.

This resulted in wind power providing around 42% of the UK’s electricity demand at a number of points during the day.

Records have continually been broken over the last 12 months as reliability, performance, efficiency and effectiveness have improved.

Energy Analyst at the Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit, Dr Jonathan Marshall, stated: “Breaking short-term output records on top of monthly and annual figures clearly shows that wind is now a major part of the UK electricity mix and will continue to be in the future.”

“Claims that the grid would be unable to handle 5%, 10% or 20% wind power have been shown to be well wide of the mark.”
