Key Findings
 Although renewable energy (excluding hydropower) is a relatively small portion o total energysupply both globally and in the United States, the installed
renewable energy capacity in boththe world and in the United States has more than tripled between 2000 and 2009.
Including hydropower,
renewable energy represents nearly 12% o total installedcapacity and more than 10% o total generation in the United States in 2009.
 Installed renewable energy capacity (including hydropower) is more than 130 gigawatts (GW).Not including hydropower, 2009 renewable electricity installed capacity has reachedabout 53 GW in the United States.
In the United States, growth in sectors such as wind and solar photovoltaics (PV) signiy anongoing shit in the composition o the nation's electricity supply.
In 2009, cumulative windcapacity increased by 39% and cumulative solar PV capacity grew nearly 52% romthe previous year.
