The share of UK electricity generation coming from renewable sources increased in the first quarter of 2014, official figures have shown.
The Energy Trends document from The Department of Energy and Climate Change showed that green energy accounted for 19.4% of the total electricity made in the UK in the first quarter of this year.
This was up from 12.4% in the same period a year earlier.
Wind energy generation increased significantly, with this credited to greater capacity and more favourable conditions.
Overall energy consumption was more than a tenth lower in the first three months of 2014 than in the same period last year. This was adjusted to a 1.8% fall when accounting for the much milder winter.
