Offshore wind farmWe have seen in the previous years that the United Kingdom has been investing heavily on wind energy. In 2013 the country started the world’s largest offshore wind farms such as the London Array.

It seems these efforts are paying off as no less than ten percent of the electricity demand in the country was met by wind power in December 2013 according to Renewable UK. Other similar records were broken that month.

Indeed, on December 21st, no less than 17 percent of the total electricity demand was met by wind. This is further proof that renewable energy just does work and deliver.
