The Welsh Government has commissioned Regen to produce a series of reports exploring energy generation and use in Wales, building on the analysis completed in previous years.
Project duration: Ongoing
As an organisation with a mission to support net zero, Regen recognises the importance of accurately tracking and communicating progress against energy targets in shaping effective policy and market responses. These studies will support the Welsh Government with the development of energy policy, helping to evidence the economic, community and environmental benefits from the development of Welsh energy projects.
Regen will analyse a variety of data sources to present an up-to-date picture of Wales’ electricity generation including the growth of renewable energy technologies in Wales, progress towards Welsh targets and the growth of local ownership since the last study concluded.
The accompanying energy use report will explore national energy consumption across a range of spatial and temporal scales, building on the methodology developed by Regen when undertaking the first Energy Use in Wales study in 2020.
The project started in October 2021 and will be completed in Spring 2021.
