Chinas Stromerzeugung wächst weiter stetig.

China und die Vereinigten Staaten machten drei Viertel des weltweiten Anstiegs der Stromproduktion im Jahr 2018 aus.

Der größte Teil des Wachstums der globalen Stromerzeugung im Jahr 2018 erfolgte in Asien (+6,1%): China trug aufgrund der hohen Nachfrage und des schnellen Ausbaus der Erzeugungskapazitäten fast 60% zum globalen Wachstum bei, gefolgt von Indien, Japan, Südkorea und Indonesien.
Auch in den Vereinigten Staaten (+3,6%) stieg die Stromerzeugung, da die Wetterbedingungen und das Wirtschaftswachstum den Stromverbrauch ankurbelten, während sie in Kanada leicht zurückging. In Russland (wirtschaftliche Erholung), im Nahen Osten und in Afrika nahm die Stromerzeugung weiter zu. In Lateinamerika blieb sie stabil, da das Wachstum in Brasilien und Mexiko durch einen starken Rückgang in Venezuela aufgrund politischer Spannungen ausgeglichen wurde.
In Europa blieb die Stromerzeugung trotz des Wachstums in Frankreich und der Türkei dank einer höheren Erzeugung aus Wasserkraft und erneuerbaren Energien (sowie einer verbesserten nuklearen Verfügbarkeit in Frankreich) stabil. Im Gegenteil ging die Stromerzeugung in Belgien (erhebliche nukleare Nichtverfügbarkeit), Deutschland, Italien und dem Vereinigten Königreich (milder Winter) zurück.

China failed to meet its energy efficiency target for 2019

According to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), China energy intensity, which measures the amount of energy needed to generate one unit of GDP, decreased by 2.6% in 2019, which was lower than the Chinese government target of 3% cut. The country felt short of its energy efficiency goals in 2019 due to the fast growth in the economic sector of steel, building materials, non-ferrous metals, chemicals, and the services. However, the NDRC also announced that the country carbon intensity (the amount of carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP) decreased by 4.1% against a target of 3.6%.

South Korea's ETS emissions dipped by 2% in 2019

Emissions under the South Korean emission trading scheme (ETS) have decreased by 2% in 2019 to 589 MtCO2, representing the first drop since the ETS entered into operations in 2015. Emissions have been driven down by the power sector (-8.6%) to 245 Mt due to temporary shutdowns of coal-fired power plants combined with a shift from coal to LNG. Conversely, emissions from the steel sector grew by 7.1% to 113 Mt fostered by higher production.

US energy-related CO2 emissions decreased by 2.8% in 2019

According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), US energy-related CO2 emissions decreased by 2.8% in 2019, to 5,130 MtCO2, i.e. 15% below their 2007 peak of 6,003 MtCO2 and offsetting a 2.9% surge in 2018 that was due to increased energy consumption (warmer weather spurred air conditioning demand). In 2019, energy-related emissions fell faster than energy consumption (-0.9%) and the CO2 intensity (CO2 emissions per unit of GDP) improved noticeably, in a context of economic growth (+2.3% of GDP). Most of the decrease in CO2 emissions occurred in the power sector (-8.2% in 2019, i.e. -145 MtCO2), as renewable power generation continued to rise and to reduce coal consumption: CO2 emissions from coal fell by 14.6%, while CO2 emissions from the use of natural gas increased by 3.3% (limited increase in gas-fired power generation).

GHG emissions under the EU ETS scheme fell by 8.7% in 2019

According to the European Commission, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions covered by the EU Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) declined by 8.7% in 2019. GHG emissions from stationary installations fell by 9% to 1.527 GtCO2eq, despite a growing EU economy (+1.5% of GDP). GHG emissions contracted by 15% in the power sector, in line with the substitution of coal-fired power generation with renewable and gas-fired generation, and they dipped by 2% in industry, including in energy-intensive branches such as iron and steel, cement, refineries and chemicals. Meanwhile, GHG emissions from aviation rose by 1% to to 68.14 GtCO2eq; the aviation sector benefited from 31.3 million free allowances, covering 46% of their emissions, while 54% had to be acquired from auctions or other sectors.
