The big winner this past quarter was onshore wind, which increased the amount of electricity it contributed by 20%, up from 6.4 TWh in 2016 Q1 to 7.7 TWh. Offshore wind fell by 2.7% to 5.0 TWh. Meanwhile, solar PV generation increased by a respectable 16% to 1.7 TWh, and hydro-generation fell by 15% down to 1.8 TWh. All in all, the UK’s renewable electricity capacity by the end of this year’s first quarter reached 36.9 GW, up 12% on the same time a year earlier and up 3.3% on the previous fourth quarter. Solar PV accounted for one-third of all renewable capacity, at 12.2 GW, followed by onshore wind which made up 32%, bioenergy with 16%, and offshore wind with 15%.
