We are on track to meet the next interim target for 2013/14, with provisional figures showing 6.3% of final energy consumption came from renewable sources, against a target level of 5.4%.</p><p>The Government has set out its plan to meet the target, including an ambition for at least 30% of electricity demand to be met by renewable sources. This includes between 11 – 13 GW of electricity to be provided by onshore wind by 2020. We have enough onshore wind in the pipeline, including projects that have planning permission, to deliver this.</p> more like this
