Electricity generation hits lowest point in more than a decade
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) publishes its Energy Trends report on Thursday 30 August. The report revealed electricity generation in June was the lowest since August 2000. The statistics showed electricity supplied from coal-fired stations rose by 63.6% year-on-year in the second quarter of 2012. Supply from gas-fired stations fell by 34.6% owing to high prices, while supply from hydro stations fell by 37.2%. Year-on-year electricity generated from wind power increased by 10.2%. The statistics also showed the UK's liquefied natural gas imports fell 42% in the second quarter, owing to competition from Japan following the closure of its nuclear power facilities in 2011.
