Electricity from Renewables and Nuclear Power in the US in Statistical Dead Heat

The latest issue of the U.S. Energy Information's (EIA) "Electric Power Monthly ," with data through June 30, reveals that renewable energy sources (i.e., biomass, geothermal, hydropower, solar — including small-scale PV — and wind) remain in a statistical dead heat with nuclear power vis-à-vis their respective shares of US electrical generation, with each providing roughly 20 percent of the total. During the six-month period (January-June), renewables surpassed nuclear power in three of those months (March, April, and May) while nuclear power took the lead in the other three. In total, according to EIA's data, utility-scale renewables plus small-scale solar PV provided 20.05 percent of U.S. net electrical generation compared to 20.07 percent for nuclear power. However, renewables may actually hold a small lead because while EIA estimates the contribution from distributed ...
