Solar sets new records

The UK’s solar output topped that of any other generation technology over the weekend as the UK’s heatwave continues the record-breaking trend of solar generation.

Data from the government and National Grid-backed Sheffield Solar PV_Live project showed that on Saturday 30 June at around lunchtime solar delivered ~9.38GW which, while just shy of a new generation record, was equivalent to almost 28% of supply. As the afternoon continued, solar is then thought to have topped gas output, which has only occurred a handful of times since the first reported instance in April 2017.
