On 25 January 2021 Forbes reported:
The results are in: last year, for the first time, renewables generated more electricity than fossil fuels across the EU, spurred on by new solar and wind power projects.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
Over the 12 months, renewable sources generated 38 percent of Europe's electricity, while 37 percent came from fossil fuels. Investment in wind and solar power was the chief driver of decarbonization, with wind generation increasing by 9 percent and solar by 15 percent, making up a total of 51 additional terawatt hours (TWh) of renewable electricity. ... Notably, nuclear generation also fell -- by a record 10 decent. This was caused largely by the closure of nuclear power plants in Sweden and Germany, and reactors being temporarily being taken offline in France and Belgium.
... Following the U.S. move to re-join the Paris Agreement last week, the results offer further hope that a global green energy revolution could be possible even as the world struggles to combat the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
