NewEnergyNews: World New Energy Keeps Growing


Gleanings from the web and the world, condensed for convenience, illustrated for enlightenment, arranged for impact...

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, the administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Therefore, until November 2020, the NewEnergyNews theme song:

    Report: Renewable Energy Capacity Grew 7.9% in 2018

    Emily Holbrook, April 10, 2019 (Energy Manager Today)

    Renewable energy capacity grew 7.9% during 2018…[to] 2,351 GW of global renewable generation capacity…[According to the International Renewable Energy Agency,] hydro accounted for the largest share of the global total, with an installed capacity of 1 172 GW. Wind and solar energy accounted for most of the remainder, with capacities of 564 GW and 486 GW respectively. Other renewables included 115 GW of bioenergy, 13 GW of geothermal energy and 500 MW of marine energy (tide, wave and ocean energy)… Growth in hydro continued to slow, with only China adding a significant amount of new capacity in 2018…China and the USA continued to account for most expansion in wind energy, with increases of 20 GW and 7 GW…

    …[China, India, and the UK] accounted for over half of the relatively low level of bioenergy capacity expansion…Asia continued to dominate the global solar capacity expansion with a 64 GW increase (about 70% of the global expansion in 2018)… Geothermal power capacity increased by +539 MW in 2018. As before, most of this expansion occurred in Turkey (+219 MW) and Indonesia (+137 MW)…Off-grid capacity in 2018 was 8.8 GW, with an increase of 390 MW during the year (+5%)…Preliminary figures suggest that the expansion of solar mini-grids has slowed in the last two years, but growth trends in the other end-uses remain stable.” click here for more
