    New Energy Passes Coal In Europe

    Renewables Generate More Energy Than Fossil Fuels In Europe For The First Time Ever

    Rosie Frost, August 14, 2020 (EuroNews)

    Over a fifth of Europe’s energy was generated by solar panels and wind turbines in the first half of 2020…Solar and wind energy generation was higher in some European countries. Denmark came out on top, generating 64 per cent of its energy from these renewable sources, closely followed by Ireland (49 per cent) and Germany (42 per cent)…[A]ll renewables - including wind, solar, hydroelectricity and bioenergy - were found to have exceeded fossil fuel generation for the first time ever. They produced 40 per cent of the EU’s power from January to June with fossil fuels contributing 34 per cent…[G]lobally a tenth of all energy was generated by these sources during the first half of 2020. This is a rise of 14 per cent compared to the same period last year…

    …[C]oal still produced a third of world’s electricity in the first six months of the year and experts warn that more dramatic cuts to fossil fuel use are needed to limit climate change…Most of the gains this year came from solar and wind projects built in 2019…[but with] many projects delayed by the pandemic, the global capacity to produce electricity from renewable sources is predicted to drop by up to 13 per cent overall this year…” click here for more
