Leader in wind and photovoltaic power generation

The International Energy Agency (IEA) created by the OECD, placed Uruguay in fourth place in the world and first in Latin America in generation based on wind and photovoltaic energy during 2018.

Uruguay generates 35% of its energy in wind energy and about 3% via solar panels. Likewise, during 2018, 97% of the electricity produced in the country was based on renewable sources, if the hydraulic energy and biomass are added.

Uruguay was located behind countries like Denmark, Lithuania and Luxembourg, being above Germany and other countries in northern Europe, while the only South American country that accompanies Uruguay among the first places is Chile, positioned in the 20th place.
