Renewable Energy Provides 37% of All New US Electrical Generating Capacity in 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- According to the latest "Energy Infrastructure Update" report from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Office of Energy Projects, renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar, wind) accounted for 37.16 percent of all new domestic electrical generating capacity installed during calendar-year 2013 for a total of 5,279 MW. That is more than three-times that provided for the year by coal (1,543 MW - 10.86 percent), oil (38 MW - 0.27 percent), and nuclear power (0 MW - 0.00 percent) combined. However, natural gas dominated 2013 with 7,270 MW of new capacity (51.17 percent). Waste heat provided the balance of new generating capacity - 76 MW (0.53 percent). Among renewable energy sources, solar led the way in 2013 with 266 new "units" totaling 2,936 MW followed by wind with 18 units totaling 1,129 MW. Biomass added 97 new units...
