Mapped: Solar And Wind Power By Country by Bruno Venditti

Wind and solar generate over a tenth of the world’s electricity. Taken together, they are the fourth-largest source of electricity, behind coal, gas, and hydro. This infographic based on data from Ember shows the rise of electricity from these two clean sources over the last decade. Wind and solar generated 10.3% of global electricity for the first time in 2021, rising from 9.3% in 2020, and doubling their share compared to 2015 when the Paris Climate Agreement was signed. In fact, 50 countries (26%) generated over a tenth of their electricity from wind and solar in 2021, with seven countries hitting this landmark for the first time: China, Japan, Mongolia, Vietnam, Argentina, Hungary, and El Salvador. Denmark and Uruguay achieved 52% and 47% respectively, leading the way in technology for high renewable grid integration.
