Wales now generates over 43 percent of its electricity consumption from renewables, contributed to by over 67,000 renewable energy projects. While the UK and England are without a renewable energy or renewable electricity target after 2020, Wales is making strides towards its 2030 target of 70 percent of its electricity consumption being generated by renewables. This is one of the headline findings of the ‘Energy Generation in Wales’ report that the Welsh Government have published today. Produced by Regen, the aim of the report is to support the Welsh Government with the development of energy policy, helping to evidence the economic, community and environmental benefits from the development of Welsh energy projects.
