Here's a table that shows the trends in energy consumption over the past decade:
Coal and Oil dependency are going down (Oil would seem to have nearly been eliminated). Coal is down by 25%, Gas has doubled, and solar has just
increased by x10 over a decade (from 1.8 KiloWatts to 14 KiloWatts). Wind power has increased by x40. Renewables actually used the pumping of water to
a high location in order to store energy.
Give it another decade, and everything could move to wind and solar.
