SHARE OF RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION IN 2013 IN COUNTRIES WITHOUT TARGET SHARES COUNTRY SHARE Brazil 79% (2014) Burundi 70% Cameroon 60% Colombia 72% Ethiopia 99% Georgia 78% (2014) India7 12% (2014) Iran 21% Kenya 65% Mozambique 95% (2014) Rwanda 60% (2014) Suriname 40% (2014) Tanzania 38% (2014) United States 13% (2014) 1 Chile’s target excludes hydropower plants over 40 MW. 2 In March 2012, Denmark set a target of 50% electricity consumption supplied by wind power by 2020. 3 Mali’s target excludes large hydropower. 4 Nigeria’s target excludes hydropower plants over 30 MW. 5 Russia’s targets exclude hydropower plants over 25 MW. 6 Thailand does not classify hydropower installations larger than 6 MW as renewable energy sources, so large-scale hydro >6 MW is excluded from national shares and targets. 7 India does not classify hydropower installations larger than 25 MW as renewable energy sources, so large-scale hydro >25 MW is excluded from national shares and targets. Note: Unless otherwise noted, all targets and corresponding shares repre- sent all renewables including hydropower. A number of state/provincial and local jurisdictions have additional targets not listed here. The United States and Canada have de facto state- and provincial-level targets through existing RPS policies, but no national targets. (See Tables R15 and R17.) Some countries shown have other types of targets. (See Tables R12–R18.) See Policy Landscape section (Section 4) and Table R19 for more information about city and local targets. Existing shares are indicative and may need adjusting if more accurate national statistical data are published. Sources for reported data often do not specify the accounting method used; therefore, shares of electricity are likely to include a mixture of different accounting methods and thus are not directly comparable or consistent across countries. Where shares sourced from Observ'ER differed from those provided to REN21 by country contributors, the latter were given preference. Source: See Endnote 13 for this section. BACK
