The data is from the UK clean energy think tank that predicts the energy crises will escalate in the coming years. Ember’den is coming.
22% of the EU’s 2022 electricity use, which is at an all-time high in solar and wind energy production, was provided by the energy obtained from these areas. Meanwhile Ember, It predicts fossil fuel production will fall by 20% this year, and gas will be the type of energy that will decline the fastest.
Europe left natural gas and is illuminated by the sun and wind!
The changes are largely due to the reduced reliance on gas and coal after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. After the invasion of Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin ordered the cut of natural gas exports to the EU in retaliation for Western sanctions. Ember, says the resulting higher costs helped energy demand fall by about 8% in Q4 of 2022 compared to the same quarter of the previous year.
“Currently the focus is on rapidly reducing gas demand while simultaneously phasing out coal,” the report said. “This means massive growth in clean energy is on the way.” He expects nuclear power to stabilize in 2023, as the planned deactivation of German nuclear reactors cancels a ramp from France. However, after the severe drought in 2022, hydroelectric power is expected to reach about 40 percent this year. tert-moment predicts it will increase.
