Solar PV generation in the UK increased by 93% year-on-year in 2014 and reached 3.9TWh, according to figures released by the Department for Energy and Climate Change.
DECC’s UK Energy Statistics report for 2014 showed that renewable energy generation increased by 20% in 2014 to 64.4TWh with Solar PV reporting the greatest increase among all renewable energy types compared to last year.
The 3.9TWh figure is approximately 6.1% of the UK’s total renewable energy generation in 2014, almost double the 3.8% share it recorded in 2013.
The increase was particularly notable in Q4 2014 during which renewables contributed a record 22% of the UK’s total energy generation, up more than 4% on the 17.9% figure recorded in the corresponding quarter in 2013. DECC also revealed that UK emissions fell 8.4% in 2014.
