    New Energy Took Europe In 2020

    Europe created more energy from renewables than fossil fuels last year; Solar and wind were up, while coal contines to fall.

    Nick Summers, January 26, 2021 (EndGadget)

    “…[Europe] generated more electricity from renewables than fossil fuels in 2020. That’s never happened before…[New research shows wind, solar, hydropower and biomass accounted for 38 percent of Europe’s electricity — up from 34.6 percent in 2019 — while fossil fuels dipped to 37 percent.

    The largest factors in this clean-energy switch were solar and wind, which rose 15 and nine percent respectively…Coal and nuclear generation, meanwhile, dipped by 20 percent and 10 percent respectively… [NatGas] fell just four percent…Wind and solar, therefore, are effectively replacing coal, rather than gas, across Europe at the moment…

    The continent has been slowly moving in this direction for some time…[The UK generated] more power from renewables than fossil fuels last year…Still, there’s work to be done…Biomass [and hydro growth have] effectively “stalled” since 2018…Europe needs to triple its solar and wind growth to meet its green deal targets by 2030…” click here for more
