Renewable Energy Generation


In 2022, production of clean energy reached new heights.

The year 2022 was a pivotal one for the production of renewable energy because governments and businesses all over the world made significant investments in projects like large green hydrogen systems, hydropower dams, and tidal and wave power operations. Clean energy investments have been made by both public and private stakeholders over the past year.

One of the most important renewable energy sources is quickly becoming wind energy. The UK National Grid ESO reported that between 6 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on December 30, 2022, a record-breaking amount of wind power was produced, totalling 20.918 GW, or 61.4 percent of the nation’s total electricity supply! This even surpassed their previous highest output, which occurred on November 2, 2022, when they reached a generation capability of 20.896 GW.

The United Kingdom had produced a staggering 74 terawatt hours (TWh) of wind energy by the end of 2022. August 2020 marked a significant milestone when installed capacity from both onshore and offshore wind farms reached 25.5 GW, up from 10.5 GW just two years earlier in 2017. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that wind power has become so important across Britain, with 129GW currently up for grabs and 93.3GW coming from sources at sea.

Success with Renewable Energy in Germany In 2022, Germany established a new production record for renewable energy. Many people are curious as to the reasons behind the country’s impressive 35% green electricity generation rate. This record-breaking output, which will account for more than 20% of Germany’s electricity production in 2022, has been primarily driven by solar power. This rise can be partially attributed to favourable weather that increased solar farm efficiency and solar production. In addition, over the course of the previous ten years, the German government has made significant investments in solar projects, which has led to an increase in the annual capacity of photovoltaic installations. More than 40 gigawatts (GW) have been installed across the nation so far, which is enough to power ten million homes, and work is being done to reach the 65 GW goal by 2030.

Additionally, wind power has significantly increased Germany’s production of renewable energy. The country currently has approximately 58 GW of installed wind capacity and generates approximately 18% of its annual electricity needs from wind sources. However, it is essential not to overlook other forms of clean energy like biomass and hydropower, both of which have significantly increased overall output.

In the years to come, Germany appears well-positioned to maintain its position of leadership in the production of renewable energy. However, in order for the company to achieve its lofty goals for the year 2030, it will need to make additional investments in every sector, including biomass, hydropower, solar, and wind energy. In addition, storage technology needs to advance further so that produced surplus energy can be effectively stored for later use when demand is high. By 2030, Germany could become a global leader in the use of renewable energy, a feat that would have profound effects on our economy and the environment.

Due to the generous funding provided by the government for its sustainable energies, China was anticipated to set new standards in the production of both fossil fuels and renewable energy by 2022. Solar power’s contribution to electricity generation had increased by 30% from 2021 during the first ten months of that year, while wind power’s contribution had increased by 25%.

Global electricity demand increased by 3% in the first half of 2022, with renewable energy accounting for the increased expansion. Hydrogen provided the remainder, with wind and solar providing 77%. In particular, solar and wind power supplied 92 percent; 81% in America; India – 23%.


At Natural World Fund, we are passionate about stopping the decline in our wildlife.

The declines in our wildlife is shocking and frightening. Without much more support, many of the animals we know and love will continue in their declines towards extinction.

When you help to restore a patch of degraded land through rewilding to forests, meadows, or wetlands, you have a massive impact on the biodiversity at a local level. You give animals a home and food that they otherwise would not have had, and it has a positive snowball effect for the food chain.

We are convinced that this is much better for the UK than growing lots of fast-growing coniferous trees, solely to remove carbon, that don’t actually help our animals to thrive.

This is why we stand for restoring nature in the UK through responsible rewilding. For us, it is the right thing to do. Let’s do what’s right for nature!
