The fact that renewable energy sources will produce a hundred percent of the world’s electrical needs in the future is often buried in people’s minds. However, non-renewable energy will run out someday.
For solar, wind, and biofuel to dominate fossil fuels, there are several steps to follow. The first is to create goals concerning the transition to a hundred percent renewable energy. Several countries, provinces, and jurisdictions only set minor goals that lead to change that is not even recognizable.
The NEB (National Energy Board) reported that the demand for electricity in Canada in 2014 was 550TWh.
How much is already clean energy?
One of the reports of NEB states that roughly 65% of energy production in Canada originates from clean sources. Out of the 646,040 GWh generated, about 1,000GWh was sent to the U.S. in 2015. Note that renewable sources refer to solar energy, wind, hydro, and biomass.
How much do people need in the future?
What is needed today does not necessarily mean it is the same after 3 or 5 years. herefore, based on the estimates and data from NEB, it is anticipated that the energy demand will increase by one percent per year. Using that rate, demands will increase to 550,000GWh (2015), 644,918GWh (2030), and 712, 391GWh (2040).
How fast will clean energy adoption happen?
According to studies, the growth rate for hydropower is 0.501% per year, wind energy at 34.7% per year, and biofuels at 5.23% per year. In 2010, solar power developed at 50% yearly. Note that before 2010, solar growth started from 5% then slowly increased to 40%.
The industry for renewable energy has made progressions over the past years.
Alternative energy is becoming conventional. Solar power development in Canada is rising because of new social advocacies, innovations, and entrepreneurs.
