According to UK-based Energy think tank, Ember, global demand for electricity increased by 3% between 2021 & 2022 - something that was met entirely by new wind, solar and hydroelectricity generation

This prevented a possible 4 per cent rise in fossil fuel generation and therefore prevented 230 million tonnes of CO2 emissions being released into the atmosphere
