Global Status Report highlights Uruguay’s renewable energy

By Pittaluga Abogados - 22/07/2022

REN21’s highlighted Uruguay’s work with energy in its recently launched Renewables 2022 Global Status Report (GSR 2022).

“Renewable energy has started to dominate again in certain parts of the world, particularly for electricity use, supported by rapid declines in the costs of wind and solar power. The share of variable renewable energy sources (wind and solar) in the global electricity mix exceeded 10% for the first time in 2021. In Denmark, the annual share of wind and solar surpassed 50%, while in Ireland, Spain and Uruguay it was above 30%”, stated the report.

REN21 is a global community of renewable energy actors from science, academia, governments, non-governmental organisations and industry across all renewable energy sectors. The GSR annually takes stock of renewable energy deployment worldwide.

The 2022 report is the 17th consecutive edition and provides proof of what experts have been warning about: the overall share of renewables in the world’s final energy consumption has stagnated – rising only minimally from 8.7% in 2009 to 11.7% in 2019 – and the global shift of the energy system to renewables is not happening.
