British wind power quietly reaches a major milestone.

Great Britain quietly reached a major wind energy milestone this holiday season, when Storm Bella wreaked havoc on the isles in the Christmas days. For the first time in the history of the UK, more than half of the country’s electricity came from wind turbines.

December 26th, 2020 will go down in history as a major milestone in the transition to sustainable energy. With Storm Bella wreaking havoc on the British Isles, wind energy production in Great Britain reached 50,7% of the entire country’s energy consumption for the day – a first for the UK!

Renewable forms of energy are growing steadily in the UK. Early estimates suggest that wind and solar delivered 29% of the electricity mix in 2020, up from 23% the year before.

The UK leads the way in the #GREENTECH transition

The nation that ignited the industrial revolution a few centuries ago is now a leader in green energy production. In 2020 alone, the UK saw the highest ever level of solar generation in April, the longest period of coal-free operation between April and June, and the greenest ever month in May, Rob Rome, NGESO’s head of national control, told The Guardian.

“The UK is a leader in green energy production. And we at Cadpeople are proud to be uniquely positioned to work with great companies within this sector and to help them make the world even greener.

We can’t wait to continue the #GREENTECH journey and make the complex simple with them.”
