HC Deb 10 June 2004 vol 422 c569W
Malcolm Bruce

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what projections her Department has made of(a) the amount and (b) the percentage of electricity the UK will be obtaining from renewable sources in each year to 2010. [176740]

Mr. Timms

A working paper showing revised energy projections has recently been published on the DTI website. The projections suggest that electricity generation from renewables could leach 15TWh in 2005 and 39TWh in 2010. Taking account of all sources of generation, some of which are not shown separately in the working paper, these represent around 3.5 per cent. and 10 per cent. of overall supply respectively.

The working paper is available on the website at: http://www.dti.gov.uk/energy/sepn/euets.shtml#uep

The Department does not publish projections of year-by-year generation patterns.
