EIA 2012 year-end report shows renewable energy power generation up, with ... - Renewable Energy Focus

Electricity generation from solar increased by 138.9% while wind grew 16.6%, geothermal by 9.6%, and biomass (i.e., wood, wood-derived fuels, and other biomass) by 1.6%. Since 2007, non-hydro renewables have more than doubled their contribution to the nation's electrical supply, the EIA report notes. At the same time (2012 compared to 2011), total net US electrical generation dropped 1.1% with petroleum coke & liquids down by 24.1%, coal by 12.5%, and nuclear by 2.6%. Significantly, coal (which only a decade ago provided more than half the nation's electricity) fell to 37.4% of net electrical generation while nuclear, for the first time in many years, slipped below 19.0%. Conventional hydropower also declined by 13.4% due to last year's drought and lower water flows, but natural gas expanded by 21.4% to provide 30.3% of net electrical generation. Conventional hydropower an...
