Our Energy Entrepreneurs Report 2014 revealed almost £300m was invested in commercial-scale independent renewable energy projects by businesses, communities, farmers and landowners last year.
The 2,930 non-Big Six projects of over 50kW capacity now in operation across the country can generate almost 20TWh of electricity a year, close to meeting the entire power needs of the UK’s public sector.
The 40.4% increase in the number of new projects and 31.9% increase in capacity compared to last year’s Energy Entrepreneurs Report highlights the scale of appetite for investing in renewable energy currently.
With a combined capacity of just over 6.2 gigawatts, independent sites - ranging from community wind turbines on remote Scottish islands to onsite generation facilities at major manufacturing plants –are together equivalent to several large traditional power stations.
