-3,3 %

Drosselung der Kohleförderung in India im Jahr 2019.

Trotz eines Anstiegs um 4 % in China war die Kohleförderung 2019 weltweit stabil

Nach einem zweijährigen Wachstum blieb die Kohleförderung 2019 weltweit stabil, da der sinkende Stromverbrauch die Nachfrage nach Kohle reduzierte.
In China, dem größten Kohleproduzenten (47 % der globalen Fördermenge), stieg die Förderung im Einklang mit der fortgesetzten angebotsseitigen Strukturreform im dritten aufeinanderfolgenden Jahr um 4 %. Die Kohleförderung hat außerdem in Australien leicht zugenommen und verzeichnete trotz der weltweit sinkenden Preise eine Beschleunigung in Südafrika.
Andere große, Kohle fördernde Länder verzeichneten einen Abwärtstrend: Einen Rückgang um 3,3 % gab es in Indien, wo eine lange Monsunzeit das Regierungsziel einer höheren einheimischen Förderung zur Reduzierung der Abhängigkeit von Kohleimporten vereitelte, und in den USA (-6,7 % aufgrund eines Nachfragerückgangs des Energiesektors in Verbindung mit sinkenden Preisen, was zu einer Welle von Insolvenzen beitrug), in Indonesien und Kolumbien. Die Kohleförderung verlangsamte ihr Wachstum in Russland (nur +1 %) und blieb stabil in der Türkei. In der EU haben die Klimapolitik, das Ende der Subventionen für die Kohleförderung im Jahr 2018, die hohen Kohlenstoffpreise und die zunehmende Konkurrenz durch erneuerbare Energien und Erdgas im Energiesektor zu einem Rückgang der Kohleförderung um 15 % vor allem in Deutschland und Polen beigetragen.

France misses its 2020 renewables target by 4 percentage points

According to preliminary data from the Ministry of the Ecological Transition, the share of renewables in France’s final energy consumption reached 19.1% in 2020, including 24.8% for electricity, 23.3% for heating and 9.2% for transports. The growth of renewable energies in France has been important since 2005, especially with the development of biofuels, solid biomass, heat pumps, wind and solar power. The country, which aimed to achieve a target of a 23% share of renewables in final consumption by 2020, including 27% for electricity, 33% for heating and cooling and 10% for transports, has missed its targets.

Switzerland’s power demand declined by 2.6% in 2020

Switzerland’s electricity consumption declined by 2.6% in 2020 to 55.7 TWh, according to the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. This decline was due to the COVID-19 related lockdowns (-4.3% in electricity consumption in the first quarter and -7.8% in the second quarter of 2020), and to economic trends (2.9% drop in the GDP), weather conditions (the number of heating degree days fell by 4.4% compared to 2019) and energy efficiency improvements to a lesser extent.

EU ETS GHG emissions declined by 13.3% in 2020

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from operators covered by the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) fell by 13.3% in 2020, due to an 11.2% decrease in emissions from stationary installations (power plants and manufacturing plants) to 1.331 MtCO2eq and a 64.1% decrease in emissions from aviation, a sector which was severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, to 24.5 MtCO2eq. 

The power sector posted a 14.9% decrease, as a result of reduced electricity consumption due to the pandemic and continued decarbonisation trends, including both the switch from coal to gas-fired power generation, and the replacement of fossil fuels by renewables. In addition, emissions from industry decreased by an average of 7%, with reductions observed in most sectors, including iron and steel (-11.7%), cement (-5.1%), chemicals (-4%) and refineries (-8.1%).

France’s primary energy consumption decreased by 9.9% in 2020

According to preliminary data from the Ministry of the Ecological Transition, France’s primary energy consumption decreased by 9.9% in 2020 to 2,571 TWh. Final energy consumption declined by 7.9% to 1,637 TWh in 2020, including 147 TWh for non-energy uses (final consumption for energy use at constant climate declined by 5.6% in 2020). The lockdown measures and travel restrictions had a significant impact on energy consumption in the transport and industrial sectors: energy consumption fell by nearly 16% in transport and by 6.5% in industry. The energy consumption of residential and tertiary building adjusted for climate variations increased slightly (+1.5% with climate corrections).
