RE Share in Electricity Consumption 2017 As of 19 September 2018

  • Notes: Electricity consumption = electricity generation + imports – exports
    For China and India, RE share in electricity generation not consumption (international electricity trade is relatively negligible in both countries). And electricity generation from geothermal is included in bioenergy (electricity generation from geothermal is negligible in both countries).
  • Sources: IEA, World Energy Statistics 2018 (September 2018), Electricity Information 2018 (August 2018), and Renewables Information 2018 (August 2018) for all countries, except China and India from BP, Statistical Review of World Energy 2018 (June 2018)

Throughout this page “Other” includes pumped storage, non-renewable waste, and other (e.g. fuel cells, electricity from chemical heat).
