Good Energy Reports Genuine Progress in Renewable Energy in the UK

The renewable energy supplier Good Energy has just released its annual report http://www.goodenergy.co.uk/media/W1siZiIsIjU3NjExYjRlOWRiYTY5MjhlODAwMDkzYSJdXQ/GE005_ProgressReport2016_ONLINEPDF_LORES.pdf 

As well as discussing Good Energy’s activities they mention that last year:

  • Renewable electricity generation outstripped coal for the first time in the UK, producing a quarter of all the electricity we use in the UK.
  • Wind energy contributed a record 11% of UK electricity.
  • Solar capacity increased from just 96MW in 2010 to over 8,200MW in 2015.
  • In May 2016, for the first time ever, there were four periods when our homes and businesses were being powered without the need to burn coal.

So why put all that money into fracking?
