Breaking Down The Global Electricity Generation By Different Energy sources In 2018

According to IEA, global electricity demand in 2018 increased by 4%, or 900 TWh, growing nearly twice as fast as the overall demand for energy. This was also the fastest increase since 2010. Together, renewables and nuclear power met a majority of the increase in power demand.

One of the main reasons for this increase was the weather condition. The 2018 summer ranked as the fourth hottest summer and its winter was colder than average winters in North America increased the call for heating. The world’s two largest power markets, China & the U.S, accounted for 70% of global demand growth. This is one side of the coin.

The other side of the coin is the electricity generation in 2018. Although in late June the global cumulative solar and wind installation passed 1TW for the first time in history, they only attributed to produce 7% of the electricity generation in the world. Coal still has the leading position of electricity generation in 2018.
