Research from Cornwall Insight showing London has suffered a small net decrease in renewable pipeline capacity, featured in Electrical Review. The region was the only one in the UK to see a net decrease, estimated to be around 5 MW.
Commenting on the decrease Laura Woolsey, Analyst at Cornwall Insight explained that this decrease was due to 26MW of energy from waste (EfW) incineration leaving the pipeline. However, elsewhere in the country, the renewable pipeline has increased.
Scotland has seen the largest increase in onshore wind, particularly in Central and Southern Scotland. Other areas have seen proportionally smaller changes in total capacity within the last year.Laura Woolsey
