NOTES

Operational Data
- Operational data are obtained from DECC's RESTATS database, maintained by AEA Technology plc (http://restats.decc.gov.uk).
- The operational data to the end of 2012 are from RESTATS; operational data since January 2013 are derived from the Renewable Energy Planning Database (REPD).
- RESTATS data include all operational schemes, including those resulting from Section 36 consents
- Operational dates were obtained from the DECC database though not all turbine sets may have been operational during the reporting year; there may therefore be differences in operational dates reported by other sources which relate to the site being Fully rather than Partly Operational.

Planning Data
- All other data are obtained from DECC's REPD.
- Currently, the planning data focus on schemes requiring Local Planning Authority Approval (<50MWe Installed Capacity) however S36 schemes are included.
- The REPD data contain one Hot Dry Rocks scheme that is not listed in the above table.
