2022 and Beyond: The Clean Energy of the Future

Posted by Dalkia Solutions on Jan 13, 2022 11:36:28 AM

It’s a brand new year, and with that comes the opportunity to carefully assess the full energy landscape across the globe. Without a doubt, renewable energy has become much more popular over the past decade—between 2011 and 2020, the amount of electricity produced in the U.S. from solar and wind sources increased almost four-fold. And according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, biomass, geothermic and hydroelectric generated about 21 percent of all of the country’s electricity in 2020, beating nuclear and coal. With these figures in mind, it’s fair to say that green energy is already in the spotlight, but what is in store for the clean energy of the future? In this blog, we’ll be looking at some of the most critical energy trends to watch in the coming years.
