Renewable Energy Balances - Interactive

The interactive map below allows you to visualise the renewable energy balances for a number of countries.

Provided by IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency), it illustrates such aspects as a country’s:

– Primary renewable energy supply mix

– Final renewable energy consumption by sector

– Gross renewable electricity and heat production technology breakdown

Global Capacity & Generation - Interactive

The interactive chart below shows the global trends in renewable capacity and generation levels.

The user is able to define the data which is presented based on criteria such as:

– Region (such as Europe, Middle East, North America etc.)

– Individual countries

– Technology

EECS GO Statistics

A Guarantee of Origin (GO or GoO) is an instrument defined in European legislation, that labels electricity from renewable sources, and provides information to electricity customers on the source of their energy.

I-REC Statistics

Just like EECS GOs, I-REC certificates undergo the steps of issuance, transfer and redemption/cancellation.

This tracking takes place in the form of a digital statement, or I-REC standard certificate (shortened to ‘an I-REC’) which is based on one MWh of electricity production from a single, generation facility.

Indian REC Statistics

The Central Agency issues the RECs to the renewable energy generators. Each REC represents 1MWh of electricity injected into the grid from renewable energy sources.

For more information on Indian RECs click here.


In Poland, the Guarantees of Origin system is overseen by Towarowa Giełda Energii S.A (TGE), the Polish Power Exchange.

Further information on Polish GOs is available here.


Biomethane (also known as ‘green gas’) can be produced from a number of sources including biogas from anaerobic digestion, landfill gas and synthetic gas (‘syngas’) from the gasification of biomass.

Ofgem Public Data: REGOs & GOs


Once data is made available by Ofgem it will appear within this live feed.

Data-sets show either the volumes of REGOs held by suppliers for the FMD of a given compliance period, or the volumes of Guarantees of Origin recognised by Ofgem within the FMD process.

USA REC Statistics

About Green-e and Center for Resource Solutions

A programme of the non-profit Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), Green-e is North America’s leading independent consumer protection program for the sale of renewable energy and greenhouse gas reductions in the retail market.

News / Statistics Updates:

November 2018: 2017 Green-e Verification Report
Green-e certified volume reaches over 60 TWh in retail transactions in 2017, representing an overall increase of 24% compared to 2016 sales.

Identified Generation Stations


– Eligibility for UK Contract for Difference (CfD) exemption has not been assessed,
– Data within a recognised registry has been used in the first instance. If such data is unavailable then alternative sources have been compiled,
– Where possible, data is presented and abbreviated in accordance with the EECS rules for types of energy input and technologies. For example, T020000 – Wind, T020001 – Wind/Onshore and T020002 – Wind/Offshore are summarised within the charts as “Wind”.

Subject to the availability of data the following charts are generated:

– “Identified Generation Stations” illustrates assets and their categorised technology within the given nation. The sum of installed capacity per technology is also illustrated (MW).
– “Identified Generation Stations: Date of Commissioning Station Count vs. Cumulative Station Count” illustrates the number of stations commissioned over time within the given nation. The cumulative count is also provided. All technologies included.
– “Cumulative Station Count vs. Cumulative Installed Capacity” illustrates the cumulative number of identified stations documented within the nation’s “Identified Generation Stations: Date of Commissioning Station Count vs. Cumulative Station Count” chart and combines it with the cumulative sum of capacity (MW).
– “Identified Hydro Generation Stations” illustrates the number of hydro stations within the nation based on the date of commissioning, and sums the respective installed capacities (MW)
– “Identified Wind Generation Stations” illustrates the number of wind stations within the nation based on date of commissioning, and sums the respective installed capacities (MW)
– “Identified Potential FIT Exemption Eligible Stations” illustrates stations which have a commissioning date of on or after the 1st April 2010, have an installed capacity of <5MW and is within an EU member state. Identified stations remain “potential” as export arrangements are unknown.
