We bring in the star of the week, Ember’s Dave Jones, to discuss the Global Electricity Review 2024, published last week.Main take aways (thank you Nat Bullard): 

  • Renewable sources (hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, biomass) are now 30% of global electricity supply.
  • Solar generation increased 23% yoy; wind 10%.
  • Fossil fuel generation increased 0.8%.

If not for a decline in hydro production, renewables would have met almost the entirety of the global increase in electricity demand.We are entering a new era of electricity with three great flexors acting on a complex and growing supply mix:

  1. Continued growth of wind+solar increasing global clean electron supply
  2. Variations in hydro and nuclear production
  3. Demand driven by electrification, data, and global wealth
