  2. Hover / click on + icons for data that is subtotalled by year, country, technology or subsidy
  3. The data above gives the installed capacity in MW and electricity generated in GWh for UK renewable generators from 2002 to date. The data is sourced variously from Renewables Obligation Certificates, Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin and in the case of some municipal waste generation, from Climate Change Levy Exemption Certificates. Output from small generators that are supported under the Feed-in-Tariff and that do not claim REGOs is estimated from the installed capacity provided in the FiT register.
  4. The data for the latest calendar year is incomplete and subject to change. The RO data year runs from April to March and is also subject to change up until the following 1 November which is the legislative deadline for the calculation and distribution of the buy-out fund.
