Emma Pinchbeck, RenewableUK's Executive Director, reported that
At one of the coldest times of the year, when we need it most, wind is generating over a third of Britain’s power needs, setting a new clean energy record.
According to the executive director UK's record is a representation of how the UK is shifting to renewable energy, with offshore and onshore wind.
Moreover, in 2018 the UK decided not to use GBP 557 million, to support bi-annual CfD auctions for offshore wind and remote island wind, beginning from the third CfD round expected this May and going throughout the 2020s.
Pinchbeck commented that the transition to renewable energy continues, as RenewableUK finalises a deal that expects to see offshore wind generate at least a third of the electricity by 2030.
If this is accomplished, it will secure £48bn of new investment and support 27.000 highly-skilled jobs.
