Natural gas and renewables dominate growth


Natural gas and renewables dominate growth

  • Wind and solar grow significantly, supported by policies to reduce CO2 emissions as well as cost reductions, and lead growth as sources for electricity generation
  • Natural gas grows significantly, with growing demand from OECD countries, China and countries where natural gas is domestically available
  • Nuclear demand grows, with more than 50 percent of this growth coming from China
  • Hydropower growth makes up more than 80 percent of growth in the other renewables category
  • Coal-fired generation grows in many Asia Pacific countries due to electricity demand growth as well as favorable economics and supportive policy environments
