The United Kingdom has been setting records in solar energy production throughout the year. It’s no surprise to see that the area’s power industry is therefore reaching its greenest year in 2017. Renewable energy will keep growing in the U.K. to the point where more records are expected to be set next year.

According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Britain was able to break 13 different renewable energy records over the last 12 months. A lot of the success comes from ongoing wind and solar projects that are being constructed, especially during the summer months. One of the records broken was in June, where Britain reached nearly 20 gigawatts of generation from renewable sources, more than gas and coal sources combined.
