Percentage of renewable electricity output

PROPORTION OF A COUNTRY'S RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY GENERATION

Renewable electricity output is an indicator to show the proportion of total electricity generated by using renewable energy sources (i.e. wind, solar, hydro and biomass-based technologies) in 2015.

It is worth noting that sub-Saharan African countries have a high share of renewables as in their total electricity generation due to the strong growth in the hydroelectric generation, which was increased by nearly 40% in the region from 2005 to 2015. (EIA, 2017). The Electricity grid network is still relatively undeveloped on this continent. In terms of the share of global renewable generation capacity, Africa’s share is still very low (2%), compared to Asia (41%) and Europe (24%). (IRENA, 2017) In addition, the percentage of the population with electricity access on the African continent, especially in rural areas is drastically low. This means that despite more electricity generation via renewable sources, there is significant demand to increase the generation capacity and high necessity of developing reliable grid networks. 

Although the share of renewable electricity generation is increasing in Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, most countries still rely on fossil fuel based electricity generation (accounted for 57.8% of total OECD gross electricity production in 2016). (IEA, 2017) To achieve the SDGs, the worldwide transition from fossil fuels to renewable sources for energy generation is a key pathway.

CO2 emissions from Energy sector

CO2 EMISSIONS PRODUCED FROM ELECTRICITY AND HEAT GENERATION

Today, electricity and heat generation are responsible for most CO2 emissions within the energy sector. Based on global emissions from 2010, electricity and heat ts for 25% of global GHG emissions, of which 76% comes from CO2. (IPCC, 2010) Although the world is shifting towards renewable energy sources, the combustion of fossil fuels, the primary source of CO2 emissions, still dominates electricity and heat generation. 


According to the latest data from 2014, sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia have the highest proportion of CO2 emissions generated from the production of electricity and heat (55% and 52%, respectively). Countries from these regions primarily rely on fossil fuels. Central Europe and the Baltic region, both a cold climate areas, also have a large proportion of CO2 emissions (52%) mainly due to a large amount of heat generation. As North America and Europe are experiencing a strong growth in renewable energy, their CO2 emissions from electricity and heat production are relatively low (45% and 42%, respectively) compared to the rest of the world. In Europe, the residential sector is responsible for 45% of total thermal consumption in 2012, and space heating accounts for the largest share, (average 78%) of residential energy consumption. (European Commission, 2016; World Bank, 2018; IEA, 2017; IEA, 2014)
