Bottom Line

Many things are continually being said in the energy discourse but, bottom line, which are the countries that are really producing low carbon electricity and which are not?

Take a look below, you may be surprised.

In red are all the countries whose electricity is more than 50% produced with combustible fuels.

Note: all data is from the IEA. A link to the full reports can be found at the bottom of this page. Thanks.

Australia:

Denmark:

Finland:

France:


Germany:


Japan:

Spain:

Sweden:

Switzerland:

UK:

USA:

Sometimes, as children, we select the wrong role models. Could this also be happening to adults in the energy discourse?

What do you think?

Very interesting indeed!
Why do you only show the winter month?

Did Japan shutdown nuclear before 2012? Germany did a step back in nuclear too didn't they?
