Alongside the growth in gas generation, 2016 also saw the continued increase of renewable generation across the OECD and in countries like China. In the OECD, renewables generation grew by 3.8% to account for 23.8% of all electricity generated, its highest share to date. The growth was largely driven by wind and solar PV, which saw annual average growth rates of 21% and 43% between 2000 and 2016.
