칠레의 전력 믹스 중 태양열과 풍력의 비중은 2018년 11%에 이르렀습니다(2010년 이후 10 pts 증가).
전력발전이 2018년 총 추가 전력생산량(태양열 16%, 풍력 15%)의 30%를 넘으면서, 2018년 전 세계 전력 믹스에서 풍력과 태양열의 비중이 0.8 pts 증가했습니다.
기술비용의 감소와 야심 찬 정책에 힘입어 전력 믹스에서 풍력과 태양열의 비중은 2018년 특히 중남미(브라질과 칠레의 야심 찬 재생가능에너지 전환), 아시아(중국, 인도, 일본), 유럽(독일, 영국, 벨기에, 터키) 등 모든 지역에서 계속 진전을 보이고 있습니다. 풍력과 태양에너지 기술은 미국과 호주에서 활기를 띠고 있습니다. 반면, 이들 기술은 아프리카와 화석연료 생산지역(CIS 및 중동)에서는 여전히 미미한 수준입니다.
According to the Swiss government, final energy consumption in Switzerland slightly increased in 2019 (+0.3%) due to cooler temperatures, economic growth (+0.9%), demographic growth (+0.7%) and increasing fleet of motor vehicles (+0.8%). This rising trend was offset by continued energy efficiency and substitution effects.
According to preliminary figures from Citepa, France’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions declined by 0.9% in 2019, from 445 MtCO2eq in 2018 to 441 MtCO2eq in 2019. This is due to a decline in GHG emissions from the residential and tertiary sector (-2.7%, i.e. -2.2 MtCO2eq, with a 2.3% drop for households and a 3.2% decline for services), in the energy sector (-0.7%, including -1.5% for power generation), and in waste processing (-2.2%). In 2019, CO2 emissions dipped by 1%, from 331.5 Mt to 328.2 Mt (-3.3 Mt), while methane emissions contracted by 0.7% (-0.4 MtCO2eq).
According to Statistics Norway, Norwegian greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions fell by 2.1% to 51 MtCO2eq in 2019, the fourth year of decline in a row, thanks to reduced fuel consumption in the transport sector (-7.7%) and a drop in emission from oil and gas extraction (-1.7% to 13.9 MtCO2eq). However, emissions in the industry and mining sector grew by 1.9% to 12.2 MtCO2eq. Overall, Norway’s GHG emissions in 2019 stood 1% below their 1990 levels.
According to Solar Heat Worldwide, the cumulated solar thermal capacity operational at the end of 2019 reached 479 GWth, corresponding to an annual solar thermal energy yield of 389 TWh. This represents savings of 135.1 Mt of CO2. In 2019, new installations in the global solar thermal market declined by 6% (+606 MWth), due to fewer collector additions in China. At the end of 2019, 58% of the installed solar thermal capacity was located in Europe, followed by Asia (35%, with China accounting for 24% of the global capacity) and the Middle-East North Africa region.
