FAST FIVE: Mapped: Solar And Wind Power By Country

Published by on

Mapped: Solar And Wind Power By Country Wind and solar generate over a tenth of the world's electricity.

Taken together, they are the fourth-largest source of electricity, behind coal, gas, and hydro.

On the flipside, the Middle East and Africa have the fewest countries reaching the 10% threshold.

Despite the record rise in renewables, solar and wind electricity generation growth currently doesn't meet the required marks to reach the Paris Agreement's goals.

In fact, when the world faced an unprecedented surge in electricity demand in 2021, only 29% of the global rise in electricity demand was met with solar and wind.
