Coal-fired Electricity Generation Will Fall to its Lowest Amount in 40 years

As we mentioned in our recent post, coal-fired electricity generation accounted for 38% of the global electricity generation. It still has the leading position in electricity generation in 2019.

Although trends and policies have rapidly been declining for coal-fired electricity generation and increasing for renewable-based worldwide, data and reports show that they will run neck and neck by 2021.

According to the U.S Energy Information Administration (EIA), coal-fired electricity generation will fall to 993 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) in 2019, sinking below 1,000 billion kWh for the first time in the last 40 years. This means that the odds of shifting policies in power generation are in favor of renewable energies.
