Renewable Energy Outpaces Coal in Power Generation for the First Time in the US in 2022
Renewables currently produce more energy than fossil fuels in Europe, and the United States is on its way there. According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), renewable power output will surpass coal in 2022, with 4,090 million megawatt-hours generated from solar, wind, hydropower, biomass, and geothermal technologies. These green sources surpassed nuclear in 2021, but the margin expanded last year. They have a total stake of around 21%.
