    New Energy Hits New U.S. Market Share Highs

    For First Three-Quarters Of 2017, EIA Data Show: Renewable Electrical Production Up 14.7%, Biomass, Geothermal, Hydro, Solar, Wind All Increase, Coal, Natural Gas, Oil, Nuclear Power All Decrease; Renewables Provide 17.8% Of Total U.S. Generation As Solar Reaches 2.0% And Wind Is 6.0%

    Ken Bossong, December 5, 2017 (EIA via Sun Day)

    “…U.S. electrical generation from renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar - inc. distributed solar, wind) rose by 14.69% during the first three-quarters of 2017 compared to the same period in 2016…Simultaneously, electrical generation by fossil fuels and nuclear power combined declined by 5.41%. Nuclear power and coal both dropped by 1.5%, natural gas (including ‘other’ gas) was down by 10.7%, and oil (i.e., petroleum liquids and petroleum coke) plunged by 17.1%...Year-to-date, electrical generation by utility-scale solar (i.e., solar thermal and photovoltaic) plus small-scale solar photovoltaic rose by 43.2% and is now providing almost 2.0% (i.e., 1.99%) of total electrical generation…All other renewable energy sources showed positive growth as well: electrical output from hydropower grew 15.0%, wind by 11.5%, geothermal by 2.9%, and biomass by 1.6%. Together, electrical generation by non-hydro renewables is now nearly 10.0% (i.e., 9.92%). Wind alone is nearly 6.0% (i.e., 5.98%)…Overall, renewables accounted for 17.78% of domestic electrical generation during the first nine months of this year…” click here for more
