Sandbag & Agora Energiewende Report on The European Power Sector in 2019

A new report, presenting the latest insights on Europe’s electricity transition has revealed that CO2 emissions fell by 12 percent across Europe in 2019, as wind and solar energy sources provided more electricity than coal for the very first time. The report, “The European Power Sector in 2019” published recently by the climate think-tank Sandbag in partnership with the German think-tank, Agora Energiewende, has revealed that in 2019, wind and solar provided 18 percent (569 TWh) of EU electricity, whilst coal fell to just 15 percent (469 TWh). Further adding that just five years ago, the EU had generated twice as much from coal as it did from wind and solar.
