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:

    Wind, Solar Gained Shares Of Total U.S. Energy In 2019

    Driven By Strong Solar And Wind Growth, U.S. Production And Consumption Of Renewable Energy Increase Slightly In 2019; Co2 Emissions From Energy Use Dip And Fall Back To 2017's Level

    Ken Bossong, March 27, 2020 (U.S. Energy Information Administration via SUN DAY)

    “The production of domestic energy from solar sources increased by 13.85% in 2019 while that from wind grew by 10.06%...[Data through December 31, 2019] reveals that - for the first time - in 2019, energy from solar sources…topped 1% of total U.S. energy production while that from wind reached nearly 3% (2.71%)…[S]trong growth in solar and wind energy's contribution to the nation's energy mix was largely offset by declines in hydropower (down 6.41%), biomass (down 3.67%), and biofuels (down 2.92%). Geothermal remained unchanged…[E]nergy production by all renewable energy sources combined (i.e., biofuels, biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) increased just marginally last year (0.24%) compared to 2018. Consumption of renewable energy also expanded - but by only 0.53%...

    While energy production by the combination of all renewables did register very modest growth, a 7.06% expansion in output by fossil fuels resulted in renewables' share of total energy production actually dropping from 12.14% in 2018 to 11.52% in 2019. But renewables' share of domestic energy consumption did increase slightly from 11.27% to 11.45%... Production of natural gas (dry) increased by 10.17% and accounted for 34.52% of total domestic energy production…Crude oil production rose by 11.11% and accounted for 25.15% of the U.S.'s total output…Energy contributed by nuclear power changed only slightly…from 8.82% to 8.37%...Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from energy consumption (i.e., oil, gas, coal, biomass) fell by 2.71% resulting mostly from a 13.97% decline in coal-related emissions. However, CO2 emissions in 2019 were at essentially the same level as they were in 2017…” click here for more
