This market report analyses the renewable energy market in the UK, covering bioenergy and waste, wind power, solar energy, and wave and tidal energy.
The UK renewable energy industry enjoyed continued growth during the recent economic downturn, driven by increased awareness of environmental issues and political pressure to meet the EU’s 2020 emission reduction and renewable energy targets. Between 2009 and 2013, total consumption of renewable energy in the UK grew significantly by 61%.
By sector, biomass was the largest contributor to renewable energy, accounting for 57.5% of the total UK renewable energy consumption in 2013. Between 2009 and 2013, consumption of biomass grew by 52.7%. This compared with a growth of 206.3% for wind, wave and tidal energy; and 359.6% in geothermal, active solar heat and photovoltaic (PV) energy sources. Over the 5-year period to 2013, use of heat pumps also experienced strong growth, while hydro power is the only sector that suffered a decline in consumption.
In terms of renewable energy consumption, the amount of renewable energy used for electricity generation has increased dramatically over the last 5 years, rising by 76% between 2009 and 2013. Over the same period, total renewable energy used to generate heat also enjoyed robust growth of 66.9%. Bioenergy was the largest contributor of renewable sources in electricity generation, accounting for 63.9% of total renewables used in 2013.
In the marketplace, there are a number of large companies and small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating in the renewable energy sector in the UK, ranging from developers and operators, to energy and oil/gas companies and equipment producers.
