Renewables could cover all UK’s electricity needs by 2030

According to a study conducted by WWF, renewable energy could cover almost all the electricity needs of Great Britain until 2030. Approximately 60-90% of all electricity needs of Great Britain could be covered with wind, solar, tides and other renewable energy sources if we set a firm target for renewable energy for the year 2030.

According to a study conducted by WWF, renewable energy could cover almost all the electricity needs of Great Britain until 2030.

Approximately 60-90% of all electricity needs of Great Britain could be covered with wind, solar, tides and other renewable energy sources if we set a firm target for renewable energy for the year 2030.

The report added that renewable energy can eliminate CO2 emissions from the energy sector in the UK without the construction of new nuclear power plants. David Nussbaum of WWF-UK said the study shows that renewable energy sources are ready to take a dominant role and could make a new industrial revolution in Britain.

The increase in electricity prices is also mentioned in the report, showing that electricity prices have risen most because of gas prices, not due to increased share of wind energy.

With more linkage with Europe (the European “supergrid”), 90% of renewable energy sources can be achieved. UK could then become a net exporter of electricity to the rest of Europe.
