  • Notes: For China, no breakdown available for thermal electricity generation; coal, oil, gas, bioenergy, and other, which are all included under “coal” that is by very far the largest source of thermal electricity generation. And for India, no breakdown of oil and gas, which are both included under “gas.”
  • Sources: For China, China Electricity Council, for India, Central Electricity Authority, and for all other countries, International Energy Agency.

RE Share in Electricity Consumption 2018 As of 27 March 2019

  • 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 for China, no data available for “bioenergy.”
  • Sources: For China, China Electricity Council, for India, Central Electricity Authority, and for all other countries, International Energy Agency.

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