The US fossil fuel output is expected to increase in 2018 and 2019

According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), the US fossil fuels production (including mainly hydrocarbons such as crude oil, hydrocarbon gas liquids and dry natural gas but also coal) is expected to rise in 2018 and in 2019.


France's gas consumption increased slightly in 2017

The French largest gas transmission system operator GRTgaz has reported a wholesale gas consumption rise by 0.4% on its network in 2017, up to 465 TWh. The gas consumption of industrial customers increased by 5.5% up to 190 TWh, mainly driven by the gas-fired power sector: in 2017, the power sector consumed 55 TWh of gas, a 20% increased compared with 46 TWh in 2016 (and only 8 TWh in 2014). This record can be explained by the lower French nuclear fleet's availability and the historically low hydropower generation in 2017. However, the consumption of customers connected to the distribution networks (residential and industry) declined by 2.9% down to 275 TWh, due to mild temperatures.


Nord Stream shipped 51 bcm of Russian gas to Europe in 2017

The Nord Stream Pipeline System shipped 51 bcm of Russian natural gas to the European Union market in 2017, reaching a 93% utilisation rate of its annual design capacity of 55 bcm. This is a 16% increase in gas deliveries, as 43.8 bcm were shipped in 2016, and is the highest utilisation rate of the facility since the commissioning of the first string in November 2011. Gas exports to Europe have ramped up every year, from 11.5 bcm in 2012 to 51 bcm in 2017, raising the cumulated volume of gas transported to the EU since 2011 to 205 bcm in 2017.


Wind and solar covered 46% of Denmark's power consumption in 2017

According to the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate, wind turbines in Denmark generated 14.8 TWh in 2017, accounting for 43% of the domestic electricity consumption and surpassing the 2015 record of 42%. The wind power share in the Danish energy mix has doubled since 2008, when it accounted for 19%. In addition, solar plants generated 0.8 TWh, i.e. 2.3% of electricity consumption: overall, wind and solar generated 15.6 TWh and accounted for nearly 46% of the power mix, the highest level in Denmark ever.
