Decoarbonisation of U.S. energy supply continues

on Friday, 06 February 2015.

A new report released by Bloomberg New Energy Finance and the Business Council for Sustainable Energy, called the 2015 Sustainable Energy in America Factbook, says that 2014 saw continuing decarbonisation and improvement in energy productivity in the US energy supply market.

The report highlights that 93% of all new US electric power production capacity constructed since 2000 has come from lower-carbon sources such as natural gas, wind, solar and other renewables; while coal power generation has remained flat over the last three years. This has made the US the world's second largest market behind China for new wind turbine construction, and the third-largest for new solar power installations behind China and Japan.
