Chris Heaton-Harris (Daventry, Conservative)
To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change how much energy was produced by on-shore wind generation in each of the last 12 months; and what proportion of the UK's total energy requirement this represented in each month.
Charles Hendry (Minister of State (Renewable Energy), Energy and Climate Change; Wealden, Conservative)
DECC produces data for all onshore wind generation, and total energy supply, on a quarterly basis. The following table shows the contribution of onshore wind generation to total UK energy, as well as electricity, supply in each of the last four quarters.
|Year/ Quarter||Onshore wind generation (GWh)||Proportion of UK total energy supply (percentage)||Proportion of UK electricity supply (percentage)|
