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)
2010 Q3 1,903 0.4 2.2
2010 Q4 2,272 0.3 2.2
2011 Q1 2,322 0.3 2.2
2011 Q2 2,480 0.5 2.9
