In recent days the storm Ciara has invested Northern Europe with
bad weather, unfortunately causing a lot of damage and inconvenience.
One of the atmospheric elements that presented itself with more intensity was the
wind, with speed up to 160 km / h which, in addition to generating
hardships and problems, has helped to set records as in the case of wind energy production in the UK.
The storm did in fact increase the production of turbines so much
wind turbines making mark coverage of 44% of English daily energy consumption: L'Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis
(IEEFA) reports that the country has scored this new milestone with one
higher production than that made on the same day by the combination of
nuclear and gas.
"In the UK, 13.57 GW of onshore wind turbines and one are installed
8.4 GW offshore fleet, world leader country " he has declared
Last year the 19% of the electricity consumed by the British was produced by
wind sources, confirming the continuous growth in this sector, also thanks to the
investment program in progress, marking the third consecutive year
Also noteworthy is the passage of storm Dennis, less than a week from
end of Ciara, who will also contribute to this production record, a meager consolation
given the problems that these weather conditions have created.
