Demand from cheap energy customers for renewable power has seen the UK's supply of renewable energy rise 23.1 per cent in the third quarter of 2010.
According to a recent report from the Department of Energy and Climate Change, renewable energy now makes up 8.6 per cent of Britain's cheap electricity supply.
Alex Murley, head of technical affairs at Renewable UK, told RenewableEnergyFocus.com: "[The] results have two important implications: we are now within reach of ten per cent of electricity from renewables, having had around two per cent a decade ago. The renewables industry has managed to deliver a five-fold increase in actual units delivered to consumers since 2001.
"Secondly, this gives us confidence that, with the right policy support, we can deliver on our 2020 targets. There are no technological barriers to having a third of our electricity from renewables in the next ten years - it is perfectly doable," he added.
