Through our Renewables Pipeline Tracker (RPT) service, we have been reporting on and analysing the growing renewables pipeline in GB for the past 18 months. This week’s ‘Chart of the week’ looks at the latest numbers in the pipeline and the key trends impacting renewable assets.
RPT research is gathered through a number of sources, including BEIS’ Renewable Energy Planning Database (REPD), National Grid’s Transmission Entry Capacity (TEC) register and the DNO embedded capacity registers. When integrated, our latest RPT shows a current viable pipeline of 86.4GW. A major part of the pipeline, 40.6GW, is classified with a development status of “scoping”, where sites are yet to submit a planning application but have a grid connection option confirmed through the TEC Register.
