Electricity consumed in England and Wales may have been generated in other parts of the UK or imported from Europe via interconnector. At a sub-national level, BEIS cannot separately identify the original fuel for electricity consumed; however, in terms of electricity generated:
(a) In 2017, 29.3 per cent of electricity generated in the UK came from renewable sources. 26.0 per cent of electricity generated in England and Wales came from renewable sources, this was a record.
(b) Almost a third of electricity generated in 2018 quarter 3 came from renewable sources, the highest figure on record. Full figures for 2018 are not yet available. Provisional 2018 figures for renewable generation in England and Wales will be published on Thursday March 28th at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/energy-trends-section-6-renewables
