Welsh Government has published energy production and consumption figures for 2013, these are available here. RenewableUK Cymru welcomes the Welsh Government’s publication of detailed statistics relating to Wales energy needs and production and the contribution this makes to a strong evidence based energy policy for Wales.

Commenting, Matthew Williams, Policy Officer at RenewableUK Cymru said “The figures show that Wales remains below the UK average for renewable energy production, despite our excellent resources and some progress in the years since 2011. This highlights ongoing issues with the permitting and consenting process in Wales and reinforces our calls for planning reform that will deliver a stable and predictable framework for development in Wales”.
