    New Energy Growth Keeps Accelerating

    Renewables Top 20% Of U.S. Electrical Generation In 2020; Production By Solar + Wind Was 17% More Than A Year Earlier, with Increase More Than Double That Of Natural Gas

    Ken Bossong, February 25, 2021 (Sun Day)

    “…Electrical generation by U.S. wind and solar set new records in 2020...[and was] 16.7% greater in 2020 than a year earlier…[A]nnual electrical production by all renewable energy sources combined (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) reached an all-time high last year and provided more than a fifth of the nation's electrical output…

    [S]olar-generated electricity - including distributed (e.g., rooftop) solar - expanded by 24.1% (compared to 2019) and provided almost 3.3% of the nation’s total. Wind grew by 14.1% and accounted for 8.3% of total generation. No other energy sources experienced similarly high growth rates…[G]eothermal energy and hydropower also increased - by 9.4% and 1.1% respectively…[T]otal U.S. electrical generation from all sources decreased by 2.7% - due at least in part to the Covid-19 pandemic…[But] electrical output by the combination of renewables increased by over 9.2%...[to] 20.6% of the country's total electrical output - up from 18.3% a year earlier…

    ...[R]enewable sources accounted for 13.6% of U.S. electrical generation at the end of 2015 and just 10.4% at the end of 2010…[a doubling of] their share of the nation's electrical generation over the past decade…[And] new electricity from wind and solar was greater than the increase in electrical generation by natural gas…[Natural gas is 39.9% of U.S. electrical output, but] grew by only 2.0% during the year…” click here for more
