Energy generation and consumption for Wales, 2011
This bulletin presents a statistical overview of current and historic energy production/generation and consumption in Wales. This is an inaugural statistical annual report on energy in Wales which will be developed in subsequent years based on feedback received following publication.
The key points from the latest release are:
- the total amount of electricity generated in Wales has continued to fall since 2008, decreasing by 15 per cent between 2010 and 2011. This downward trend in mainly due to the decline in electricity generated from gas
- the total amount of electricity generated from renewable resources in Wales has steadily increased, rising by 33 per cent between 2010 and 2011, which is mainly due to the increase in wind generation
- the percentage of electricity generated in Wales from renewable sources has continued to increase since 2004, reaching a peak of 7.9 per cent in 2011. This is higher than the percentage generated from renewable sources in England but slightly lower than that of the UK average (9.4 per cent)
- total energy consumption has been falling since 2005, though more so since 2007 which coincides with the economic downturn. It would appear that the industry and commercial sector accounts for a large proportion of this decline
