Key points of the World Gas and Renewables Review

In 2019 global gas demand has continued to grow for the 10th year in a row, driven by Asia Pacific (+4.3%) and North America (+2.7%). China confirmed itself as the 1st world importer.

Global gas production continued the positive trend with a +3.1% in 2019, despite the decline in Europe (-6.5%), mainly thanks to new LNG plants start-up in US and Australia. During 2019, US became the 2nd world gas exporter after Russia overtaking Qatar.

Big step forward for LNG that now accounts for 38% of total traded gas, gaining 4% share in one single year (34% in 2018).

Solar energy continued to dominate renewable capacity expansion with a yearly increase of 20%, doubling the 10.5% growth recorded by wind.

Asia confirmed its leadership in solar capacity expansion (about 60% of the total in 2019 and China maintained its leadership in solar and wind capacity.
