UK renewable energy capacity to more than double by 2030. GlobalData projects the nation’s clean energy capacity to increase from 46.7GW in 2020 to 110.5GW by the end of the decade. Renewable energy capacity in the UK is expected to more than double by 2030, powered by significant growth in the wind power sector. That is according to a report by data and analytics firm GlobalData, which projects the nation’s renewable power capacity to increase from 46.7 gigawatts (GW) in 2020 to 110.5 GW by 2030, growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9%. The UK government has committed to reaching net zero on greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and offshore wind is a key component of its strategy to achieving its climate goals. The country has about 35% of the global wind capacity installed and is already home to seven of the world’s 10 biggest sites, with its Dogger Bank project in the North Sea set to become the largest of its type.
