Distribution of Renewable Energies Worldwide (BRICS, EU and Top 6 Countries, 2018)
Hydropower was not included in the graphic because it is the largest amount of renewable energies and would mask the development of other, less common technologies. The five BRICS countries are Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
The electricity generation capacity based on renewable energies increased by 7.4% in 2019. Last year, the new installations amounted to 174.7 GW, of which 97 gigawatts are photovoltaic.
