UK’s wind energy sector saw a number of power generation records broken in December 2013. The country’s wind energy projects generated more electricity in December than in any month before that, breaking the previous generation record of October 2013.

For the first time, the country witnessed more offshore wind energy capacity being installed than onshore wind energy capacity. Offshore wind energy capacity grew by 79% between July 2012 and June 2013. The total new capacity added between this period brought £2 billion of economic activity in Britain, according to RenewableUK.

Looks like the real growth is in the offshore sector.
