The UK is continuing to make progress towards the EU Renewable Energy Directive target of 15% of final energy consumption from renewable sources. We are on track to meet the next interim target for 2013/14; provisional figures published on 25 June 2015 show 6.3% of final energy consumption came from renewable sources in 2013/14 against a target level of 5.4%. We will be reporting final figures at the end of the year.
