In 2023, 30% of electricity had supply from solar and wind power

Day by day the rate of electricity generation from renewable sources is increasing worldwide. In 2023, 30.3 percent of the world’s total electricity generation had come from solar and wind power projects.

UK-based think tank company Ember Climate said this information in a report. Ember Climate also referred to this amount of electricity generation as a ‘record’.

Burning fossil fuels like coal and fuel oil releases greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, into the air, contributing to climate change and global warming. Due to this reason, much importance is being given to curbing the use of fossil fuels around the world.

The United Nations Environment Conference COP28 was held in Dubai last year. More than 100 member states have agreed to triple electricity production from renewable sources by 2030.

Ember Climate‘s report on May 16, 2024, stated that the rate of renewable electricity generation increased in 2023 compared to 2022. In 2022, 29.4 percent of the world’s total electricity generation came from renewable sources.

China is the leader in generating electricity from renewable sources such as solar and wind power. China generated 23.2% of the world’s solar electricity in 2023 and 9.8% of the world’s wind electricity.

Ember Climate predicts that global reliance on fossil fuels will decrease by at least 2 percent by the end of 2024, if the current growth of renewable energy projects in different countries continues.

The report is hopeful that people are realizing that the global use of fossil fuels for power generation is coming to an end. One day people will rely entirely on renewable sources for electricity and that day is not far off.
