Ratio between: (i) numerator: consumption and production of sustainable, clean and renewable energies, and (ii) denominator: total final energy supply and production. The percentage of sustainable, clean and renewable sources of electricity is that generated from renewable energies divided by total electricity use.
Energy use is measured in terms of heat content based on specific net calorific values (NCV).
It was suggested that this indicator be disaggregated at the level of major administrative divisions (MAD).
This indicator considers non-conventional renewable energy (NCRE).
The original wording of the indicator was altered following a suggestion to express it in a general way so as to include other forms of energy generation.
This indicator measures the percentage of renewable energy sources in TPES, TFC, and in power generation and generation capacity.
Renewable energy sources include both combustible and non-combustible materials.
Shortcomings of the indicator: In some developing countries, the difficulty of obtaining data on certain renewable sources can be a limitation.
