Energy supplies from biomass have reached a record 14% share of the UK power mix.
The previous record of 13% was set earlier this year.
Drax suggests biomass has generated more power than solar energy this year and notes it has contributed to a reduction in emissions and wholesale power prices.
In the early hours of yesterday (26 May, 2020), biomass supplied 13.79% of Britain’s #electricity – beating the previous record of 13% set earlier this year. 📊⤵️
