Offshore renewable generation rose 75% in 2010: Provisional figures for the UK's energy use and greenhouse gas e...

The generation of electricity through offshore renewables increased by nearly 75 per cent last year, government figures show. Provisional figures for the UK's energy use and greenhouse gas emissions have been published by the Department for Energy and Climate Change and show that total renewable energy generation increased 0.4 per cent last year on the year before. Owing to low wind speeds, onshore wind generation fell by 7.7 per cent, while hydro -electricity generation declined 32.4 per cent due to low rainfall. Despite this, the nation's greenhouse gas emissions have increased by 2.8 per cent on 2009's figure, while carbon dioxide emissions increased 3.8 per cent.
