12% of Global Electricity Now Generated by Wind and Solar
According to a study published on Wednesday, wind and solar energy will account for a record-breaking 12% of the world’s electricity production in 2022. EU nations are falling behind in the expansion of wind power.
According to a survey by the independent energy think tank Ember, 39% of the world’s electricity last year came from renewable sources, including nuclear energy.
The authors predicted that this year’s fossil fuel generation will decrease by 0.3% due to a phase-down of gas power and a decrease in coal-fired power.
The Report’s Findings
Electricity is as pure as ever, with solar power up 24% from 2021 and wind up 17%. Over 60 countries today use more than 10% of their electricity from solar and wind sources.
Ember collects data for its annual global electricity review from 78 nations, which together account for 93% of the world’s electricity use.
Wind and solar energy supply 22% of the electricity used in the European Union. With 9% increase from wind power, however, the EU appears to lag behind the rise of wind energy globally.
“The EU started the race to renewables early but, as the world accelerates, it cannot afford complacency,” said Sarah Brown, the Europe programme head for Ember.
Concern over decreased fossil fuel imports was raised among EU member states following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February of last year. A plan to raise renewable energy to 45% was presented by the European Commission, which would be a 5% increase from the previous year.
The investigation revealed that, despite a global gas crisis, gas-fired power dropped by 0.2% last year as a result of high prices making the fuel more prohibitively expensive to use.
Russia’s sharp reduction in gas supplies has forced some nations, including Germany, to restart coal-fired power facilities and import liquefied natural gas. According to Ember’s study, Germany has been “a world leader” in the deployment of onshore wind while also promising to employ more renewable energy sources.
However, Germany has only added a third of the annual amount of wind power capacity it did in the four years prior in the last five years. The main factors include a lack of construction-ready land, drawn-out licencing processes, and investor concern.
To meet the EU’s goals by 2030, according to Sarah Brown of Ember, “the barriers preventing the rapid deployment of onshore wind power must be removed.”
