Electricity in Bermuda in 2019

Global Ranking: #198
0.0% #198 Low-carbon electricity
1073.01 watts #19 Generation / person
655.00 gCO2eq/kWh #196 Carbon Intensity

In 2019, it was reported that Bermuda's entire energy consumption originated from fossil fuels. This indicates that the island heavily relies upon energy sources that significantly contribute to climate change and air pollution. Undoubtedly, the lack of any sort of low-carbon energy use signals that Bermuda's energy sector largely lacks a green footprint.

Suggestions

Given that Bermuda's geographical location boasts ample hours of sunlight and favorable breezes, it could derive lessons from successful countries incorporating wind and solar power into their energy mix. For instance, Denmark and Uruguay were able to generate 59% and 41% of their electricity from wind, respectively, while Chile utilized its solar resources to contribute 20% towards its electricity mix. Although, nuclear energy, another low-carbon option, has a remarkable success rate as seen in countries like France and Slovakia, generating 66% and 61% of their electricity respectively, the size of Bermuda and its populace could make it a less feasible choice.

History

Unfortunately, there is no historical data pertaining to Bermuda's use of low-carbon electric energy. As per the current state, Bermuda is yet to establish and incorporate a sustainable, green energy portfolio and development programs focused on low-carbon electric energy generation like wind and solar power. The history of Bermuda's energy consumption has predominantly aligned with fossil fuels, indicating the absence or negligible presence of low-carbon energy resources. Implicit in this is an urgent need for Bermuda to pivot towards a greener, more sustainable energy framework similar to several countries worldwide.
