The latest study by Ember suggests that over half of the world's coal-fired power was generated by China in 2020

The latest study by Ember suggests that over half of the world's coal-fired power was generated by China in 2020

Amid the ongoing pandemic, China has managed to up its coal generation in 2020, making it the only country in the world to achieve a major rise in coal-fired generation. The latest report from the London-based research company Ember suggests that China is now ahead of other countries by being responsible for 53 percent of electricity generated by coal. This is way better than the previous best of 44 percent in 2015. In 2020, China’s coal generation effort rose by 2 percent, and we must also understand that there was almost 33 percent increase in electricity demand in 2020. China is still trying its best to reduce the coal generation growth.

The report stated that the rise in demand for electricity is driving the coal emissions and power. Previous year’s report shows that China has still not found a sustainable alternative to meet the ever-growing energy demands, and as of now, renewables are responsible for less than half of total energy consumption by the people. Over the last years, China has received immense support from everyone due to its clean energy efforts, but on-ground, realities are certainly disappointing for the country. Even though China is known for its clean energy efforts, the country is still continuing to build storage and stockpile coal.
