9. The rise in renewables was robust despite the pandemic. Wind and solar increased by 51 terawatt-hours in 2020. However, Europe needs to add 100 TWh *every year* this decade to meet 2030 emissions targets. EU Power Sector in 2020: ember-climate.org/project/eu-pow… pic.twitter.com/aqCFyl2kGq

8. Nuclear generation fell a record 10% in 2020, as problems in France and Belgium combined with permanent closures in Sweden and Germany. This was the biggest fall since at least 1990, and possibly ever. EU Power Sector in 2020: ember-climate.org/project/eu-pow… pic.twitter.com/FOmGVHwZOl
