Verlangsamter Anstieg des Energieverbrauchs im Jahr 2019 (+0,6 %), der weit unter seinem historischen Trend liegt

Im Kontext eines schwächeren Wirtschaftswachstums verlangsamte sich der Anstieg (+0,6 %) des globalen Energieverbrauchs 2019 verglichen mit den 2 %/Jahr im Zeitraum 2000-2018.
Der Anstieg des Energieverbrauchs verlief langsamer als in den vergangenen Jahren in China (+3,2 %), dem weltweit größten Verbraucher seit 2009, in Russland (+1,8 %) und in Indien (nur +0,8 %). Er ging in fast allen OECD-Ländern einschließlich den USA (-1 %), der EU (-1,9 %), Japan (-1,6 %), Kanada und Südkorea zurück. Als einzige Ausnahme meldete Australien ein Wachstum um 6,3 % (verursacht durch den sprunghaft gestiegenen Erdgasverbrauch durch LNG-Anlagen), das weit über dem historischen Durchschnitt liegt. Der Verbrauch blieb dynamisch in Indonesien und Algerien, stieg in Saudi-Arabien, Nigeria und Südafrika, verzeichnete aber einen Rückgang in Lateinamerika (Stabilität in Brasilien, leichter Rückgang in Mexiko). Die US-Sanktionen haben zu einer Reduzierung des Verbrauchs in Venezuela und in Iran beigetragen.

China's carbon intensity decreased by more than 18% over 2015-2020

According to the Chinese Ministry of Ecology and Environment, China’s carbon intensity, which measures the amount of CO2 emitted to generate one unit of GDP, decreased by 18.8% over the 2015-2020 period, exceeding the targeted 18% reduction. According to the National Bureau of Statistics, China's carbon intensity declined by 1% in 2020, as the country reduced its coal use to from 57.7% of energy consumption in 2019 to 56.8% in 2020. The share of gas, hydropower, nuclear power and wind power increased by one percentage point to 24.3% of consumption.

France's electricity consumption declined by 3.5% in 2020

According to the French power transmission system operator RTE, weather-adjusted electricity consumption in France fell by 3.5% in 2020 to 460 TWh due to the health crisis, which has led to a fall in economic activity. Electricity demand from large-scale industry declined by 10% (including a fall of up to 20-25% in some sectors such as automobile construction, steel production or rail transport), whereas residential consumption remained stable.

Poland's solar installed capacity tripled in 2020 to 3.9 GW

Poland’s solar installed capacity tripled in 2020, increasing from 1.3 GW in January 2020 to 3.9 GW in January 2021. Solar capacities have been soaring over the past two years thanks to favourable subsidies to rooftop installations: the number of residential solar panels rose from 4,000 in 2015 to over 450,000 in December 2020.

Coal accounted for 56.8% of China's energy consumption in 2020

According to the National Bureau of Statistics, China reduced its coal use to from 57.7% of energy consumption in 2019 to 56.8% in 2020. However, overall coal use has continued to increase in a context of record industrial production and of completion of coal-fired power plants, and has not peaked yet. The share of natural gas, hydropower, nuclear power and wind power increased by one percentage point to 24.3% of consumption. Energy demand rose by 2.2% in 2020, with crude oil demand increasing by 3.3% and natural gas by 7.2%. According to the National Bureau of Statistics, the carbon intensity (CO2 emissions per unit of GDP) declined by 1% in 2020.
