In news unrelated to the COVID-19 pandemic, data regarding the world’s energy consumption in the past year shows a promising trend. Renewable energy sources, including solar, wind, geothermal, and others, made up the vast majority of global energy source expansion. Of all the addition to the earth’s total power usage, over 70% consisted of renewable forms of energy, with around 90% of this contribution being solar and wind energy.
While the total proportion of energy that is renewable still stands at around 30%, this number is a growing percentage every year, as more of the net increase comes from renewables. More and more countries are recognizing and responding to the benefits of renewable energy, both in terms of economic stability and environmental protection. Although it may seem like those in support of renewable energy are the minority, renewable energy is becoming the majority when it comes to energy expansion.
