Renewable Energy

STATisticS Database for the United Kingdom

Welcome to the RESTATS Web Site

This web site holds statistical information on renewable energy projects from the following data collection activities undertaken by Ricardo-AEA on behalf of the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC):

  • RESTATS, the Renewable Energy STATisticS database, contains performance statistics on all relevant renewable energy sources in the United Kingdom.
  • REPD, the Renewable Energy Planning Database, tracks the progress of projects from inception, through planning, construction and operational phases

These projects are key to assessing the success of the renewable energy technologies and progress against targets introduced in the 2009 Renewable Energy Directive.
