The US Energy Information Administration reports that in 2020, renewable energy sources (including wind, hydroelectric, solar, biomass, and geothermal energy) generated a record 834 billion kWh of electricity, or about 21% of all generation in the United States. Only natural gas (1617 billion kWh) produced more in 2020. Renewables overtook both nuclear (790 billion kWh) and coal (774 billion kWh) for the first time on record. This outcome in 2020 was due mostly to significantly less coal use in US electricity generation and steadily increasing deployment of wind and solar.
