Energy and Climate Change
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 (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)|
