The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) publishes modeled projections and analysis for world consumption and production of renewable energy (and other types of fuel/energy sources) in the International Energy Outlook (IEO). The IEO2021 includes projections for world renewable energy consumption, production of liquid fuels from renewable sources, and electricity generation from renewable energy sources for the world, world regions, and selected countries.
The IEO2021 Reference case projections for renewable energy's share of total world energy consumption, liquid fuels production, and electricity generation are:
|Liquid fuels production2||3%||3%||3%||3%|
