However, TPES ignores conversion efficiency, overstating forms of energy with poor conversion efficiency (e.g. coal, gas and nuclear) and understating forms already accounted for in converted forms (e.g. photovoltaics or hydroelectricity).
Civilian nuclear power supplied 2,488 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity in 2017, equivalent to about 10% of global electricity generation, and was the second largest low-carbon power source after hydroelectricity.

Solar energy

This value, after multiplication by the cross-sectional area intercepted by the Earth, is the total rate of solar energy received by the planet; about half, 89,000 TW, reaches the Earth's surface.
This is several times larger than the total world energy consumption, which was 559.8 EJ in 2012.

Energy mix

Fossil fuels are dominant in the global energy mix, supported by $523 billion subsidies in 2011, up almost 30% on 2010 and six times more than subsidies to renewables.
In 2007, the global primary energy use corresponded to 12.5 e6t oil equivalent corresponding to 145,375 GWh).

Fossil fuel

fossil fuelsoil and gasOil & Gas
In addition to producing air pollution like fossil fuel combustion, most biomass has high CO 2 emissions.
the world's primary energy sources consisted of petroleum (34%), coal (28%), natural gas (23%), amounting to an 85% share for fossil fuels in primary energy-consumption in the world.

Climate change mitigation

Efforts to resolve this include the Kyoto Protocol (1997) and the Paris Agreement (2015), international governmental agreements aiming to reduce harmful climate impacts, which a number of nations have signed.
Energy efficiency has proved to be a cost-effective strategy for building economies without necessarily growing energy consumption.

The IEA estimates that, in 2013, total primary energy supply (TPES) was 1.575 × 10 17 Wh (= 157.5 PWh, 157,500 TWh, 5.67 × 10 20 joules, or 13,541 Mtoe) or about 18 TW-year.
The terawatt hour and petawatt hour (PWh) units are large enough to conveniently express the annual electricity generation for whole countries and the world energy consumption.
