- Apr 16, 2018 -

According to new data released by the international renewable energy agency (IRENA), the capacity of renewable energy generation in the world will increase by 167GW to 2179GW in 2017.

According to new data released by the international renewable energy agency (IRENA), the capacity of renewable energy generation in the world will increase by 167GW to 2179GW in 2017.That means about 8.3 per cent a year.

Global bioenergy capacity grew by 5GW last year, about 5%.By the end of the year, global bioenergy capacity is estimated at 109GW.

Data on the growth of bioenergy in Asia.

According to the international renewable energy agency, Asia continues to account for most of the growth in biofuel capacity, with China adding 2.1GW, India 510MW and Thailand 430MW.Europe's bioenergy capacity has also increased by 1GW, and South America's bioenergy capacity has increased by 500MW.According to the international renewable energy agency, South America's growth is relatively low compared with recent growth.

North American bioenergy growth data.

The data show that the total capacity of biofuel in the United States increased last year, from 12.98 GW in 2016 to 13.151 GW.U.S. solid biofuels and renewable waste bioenergy capacity reached 10.567GW last year, up from 10.415GW in 2016.In 2017, biogas power generation reaches 2.429GW, up from 2.41GW in 2016.
