Green Energy Gaining Share in Electricity

Green Energy Gaining Share in Electricity

• Renewables up to 21% in 2020
• Natural Gas largest at 40%
• Nuclear Power carbon-free at 20%


Green Energy is gaining share within the electricity generation industry. Renewables are up to 21% and growing rapidly. Nuclear is a carbon-free alternative that is poised to grow again as the world recognizes the need to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Natural gas is a cleaner carbon-based energy source and has largely replaced coal. While natural gas is an emitter of greenhouse gas, it will be an important energy source for the next few decades until green energy infrastructure can be built out across the globe.
