Wind and solar power could significantly exceed Britain’s energy needs
Britain’s energy needs could be met entirely by wind and solar, according to a policy brief published by Oxford’s Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment.
Wind and solar can provide significantly more energy than the highest energy demand forecasts for 2050 and nearly ten times current electricity demand (299 TWh/year). The research shows up to 2,896 TWh a year could be generated by wind and solar, against the demand forecast of 1,500 TWh/year.
