Welcome to Renewables Map.

Growth in Alternative Energy Projects in the UK
by year and month
Project lists: Wind Farms | Hydro Schemes | Biomass | Waste | CHP | Wave & Tidal | Solar |    

Please note that this is a listing that is being developed and as much as anything gives me an idea of which dates are missing. As time goes by I will make this listing more useful and complete. Those projects marked as 1900 are simply those where a commissioned date hasn't yet been added. Where a date exists it is usually accurate. Where I do not have a month I am using 6 (June), where I haven't looked for a month yet, I am using 0.

(To do: click on a year or month and see list of which projects went live then, select by project type, option to list just by year, turn it into a graph)
