Finally,   using   a   combination   of   estimates   of global  mining  locations  and  regional  renewables penetrations   we   again   calculate   the   Bitcoin  mining  industry  to  be  heavily  renewables-driven. Our   current   approximate   percentage  of renewable   power   generation   in   the   Bitcoin mining  energy  mix  stands  at  74.1%,  more  than four times the global average.

Do you agree with this report though? I'm not into mining and I don't have any idea what the numbers are. But I'm sure there is a lot of 'experts' in our community here.
