Ember’s recent Global Electricity Review revealed that wind and solar produced 2,435 TWh of electricity in 2020, providing almost a tenth of the world’s electricity. Wind and solar have doubled since 2015, when they generated 5% (1083 TWh) of the world’s electricity.
Some countries are generating significantly more electricity from wind and solar. The global leaders are Denmark and Uruguay, which generated 61% and 44% of their electricity from wind and solar in 2020.
The majority of the top 15 wind and solar countries are in Europe, but the list also features Australia and South American countries Uruguay and Chile.
