Global CO2 intensity reduction accelerate in 2016 (-3.1%) compared to the past trends (-1.4% on average over 1990-2015)

On a more longer term trend, CO2 intensity has fallen in all regions since 1990 except in Middle East.
In the OECD countries, CO2 emissions per unit of GDP are 15% below the world average, driven down by the European Union (-2.4%/year since 2000) at a level close to half of that of 1990.
The United States posted a noticeable fall of 45% between 1990 and 2016.
CIS countries have recorded a similar drop (45%) since 1990 but the CIS region remains, by far, that with the highest CO2 intensity.
High intensities are recorded in fossil-fuel rich and developing countries.
In 2016, significant drops have been recorded in China, Spain, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.

Enel commissions 300 MW Rock Creek wind park in Missouri (US)

Enel has commissioned the 300 MW Rock Creek wind park, located in Atchison County, in Missouri (United States), which raises Missouri's total installed wind capacity to nearly 1 GW. The plant is expected to generate around 1,250 GWh/year and to avoid the emission of 900 ktCO2/year. The power produced by the US$500m facility will be sold to Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L) and KCP&L Greater Missouri Operations Company (GMO) under the framework of long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs).
