UK Energy Statistics: Energy Trends and Quarterly Energy Prices

(LEXEGESE) - The main points for the third quarter of 2012 are:
  • Indigenous production of fuels in the UK fell by 7.3 per cent in the third quarter of 2012 compared with a year earlier. Production of oil fell by 12.1 per cent whilst gas fell by 11.3 as a result of maintenance work and delays on a number of fields.
  • Total primary energy consumption for energy uses rose by 1.2 per cent. A similar rise is seen in the temperature corrected data.
  • Of electricity generated in the third quarter of 2012, gas accounted for 28.2 per cent (it’s lowest third quarter share for 14 years) due to high prices, whilst coal accounted for 35.4 per cent (it’s highest third quarter share for 14 years). Nuclear generation accounted for 22.3 per cent, whilst renewables share of electricity generation increased by 2.6 percentage points to 11.7 per cent in the third quarter of 2012. Overall low carbon fuels accounted for a record share of 34.0 per cent of generation.
  • Offshore wind increased by 54 per cent, with onshore wind up by 38 per cent due to increased capacity, whilst hydro output fell by 16 per cent as a result of lower rainfall in North Scotland.
  • Provisional data for 2012 suggest that for fixed consumption levels of electricity of 3,300 kWh per annum, bills increased by £25 to £478; and for fixed consumption levels of gas of 18,000 kWh per annum, bills increased by £79 to £798.
