Renewables Accounted for 33% of UK Energy Production in 2018

3 Jan 2019

In a new report, it has been revealed that renewables made up 33% of energy production in the UK in 2018.

According to stats published by Carbon Brief, the top energy sources in the UK last year were as follows:

  • Gas: 132 TWh (39.4%)
  • Nuclear: 65 TWh (19.4%)
  • Wind: 58 TWh (17.4%)
  • Biomass: 36 TWh (10.7%)
  • Coal: 17 TWh (5.1%)
  • Solar: 13 TWh (3.8%)
  • Hydro: 5 TWh (1.5%)
  • Other: 9 TWh (2.8%)

As you can see, Nuclear was the most prolific low carbon energy source in 2018, with Biomass also increasing its output (contributing 32 TWh in 2017).

Jobs in Energy, Nuclear and Biomass

As the UK continues to look to Biomass and Nuclear to complement its Energy generation in years to come, now is the time for skilled contractors and permanent staff to enter these sectors.

Millbank have decades of experience in traditional Energy sectors as well as Nuclear, and an increasing client base within Biomass.
