Electricity in St. Pierre & Miquelon in 2021

Global Ranking: #210
0.0% #210 Low-carbon electricity
966.60 watts #23 Generation / person
655.00 gCO2eq/kWh #196 Carbon Intensity

Based on the data, the entire electricity consumption in St. Pierre & Miquelon in the year 2021 was from fossil fuels. This equates to a 100 percent dependence on carbon-intensive energy sources for the region. At present, there is no fraction of low-carbon energy in their electricity mix such as nuclear, wind, or solar power. The usage is entirely fossil-based, setting the region at stark contrast with global climate goals and clean energy transitions.


Given these figures, there are several steps that can be taken by St. Pierre & Miquelon for the promotion of low-carbon electricity generation. It can draw lessons from the successful strides made by countries like France and Slovakia, which generate a predominant percentage of their electricity from nuclear energy. Similarly, Denmark and Uruguay have made great strides in harnessing wind energy for electricity generation, which could also serve as a potential model for St. Pierre & Miquelon. Given the size and conditions of St. Pierre & Miquelon, a mix of low-carbon energy sources could be the optimal way forward combining nuclear for stable base load and wind power when conditions permit.


Unfortunately, there is no historical data provided on the status or changes in low-carbon electricity generation in St. Pierre & Miquelon. Without this information, it is difficult to assess the region's past progress or challenges in transitioning to low-carbon energy sources. It is critical for future data collection and reporting to include this sector, as understanding the history and trajectory of low-carbon electricity is essential for planning and implementing sustainable energy strategies. It would help in identifying trends, progress, and areas where more action is needed toward a sustainable, low-carbon energy future.
