Interesting intuitive graphic of where energy comes from in the US in 2020 and where it goes. Dont know about other countries but the Wall Street Journal says that due to the cost and availability of natural gas, coal is having a resergence in Europe. If this graph is correct, then note the power lost in the electrical grid.... 65% of energy feed into it is lost in heating the grid wires and transformers....What we techs call "IR" loses. I am keeping my own politics out of this one...please honor the forum rules and dont make this a political thread...but if you have a graph like this for your own country, I would love seeing it.
