Report Description

In 2020, the renewable generation capacity increased by 10.3% which is 260 GW. Solar energy continued to lead the capacity expansion, with an increase of 127 GW (+22%), followed closely by wind energy with 111 GW (+18%). Hydropower capacity increased by 20 GW (+2%) and bioenergy by 2 GW (+2%). Geothermal energy increased by 164 MW. Solar and wind energy continued to dominate renewable capacity expansion, jointly accounting for 91% of all net renewable additions in 2020. Some of the regions across the globe such as North America have some of the world’s richest wind, solar, geothermal, hydro, and biomass resources. The region relies on renewable energy for large-scale power generation, particularly in the form of hydropower. Hydropower accounts for 63% of electricity generation, in Canada whereas, some dams are more than 100 years old in the country. Furthermore, wind and solar energy are poised to contribute 90-95% new electricity generation to the grid in North America by 2050, as revealed by North American Renewable Integration Study (NARIS).

In 2020, the consumption of all other fuels declined while the only source which increased the demand for energy sources was renewables. As the global economy recovers from the crisis, The renewable energy source witnessed an uptake, therefore, expand more quickly. As per International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2020, the annual renewable capacity additions increased witnessed the highest year-on-year increase since 1999 and increased by 45% or 280 GW. Furthermore, exceptionally high-capacity additions become the “new normal” in 2021 and 2022, with renewables accounting for 90% of new power capacity expansion globally.
