UK on Course to Meet Energy Targets
Date: 23 Nov 2010
Thanks to people like Plug Into The Sun’s customers, the UK is on course to meet its 2020 renewables target. Schemes like the Feed-in tariff have enabled thousands of homeowners to switch to the solar solution through microgeneration. The financial rewards are there and now too, the environmental rewards.
A new report from the National Grid has published these exciting findings and reveals statistics on proposed uptake of microgeneration, like solar panels. 31,950 MW of existing and proposed renewable energy generation capacity has connection agreements over the next ten years. 4950 MW of renewable generation capacity is connected to the transmission network, with proposed projects this year totalling a further 27,000MW. This means there would be enough to power more than 20 million homes and would surpass the 29,000 MW estimated by the National Grid to be needed to meet the 2020 target to meet 15% of the country’s total energy demand through renewable energy.
