RMI’s 2017 Micropower Database Release: Electricity Generation from Micropower Is on the Rise while Nuclear Power’s Output Share Continues to Flatline
Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) just released its 2017 Micropower Database, a compilation of global generation and capacity data for low-carbon micropower and nuclear electricity sources. “Micropower” refers to sources of electricity that are relatively small, modular, mass-producible, quick-to-deploy, and hence rapidly scalable. For the purposes of this database, it means…
