Bitcoin Mining Council Survey Confirms Sustainable Power Mix

Bitcoin mining electricity mix increased to 57.7% sustainable in Q3 2021

AUSTIN, TEXAS – OCTOBER 19, 2021 — The Bitcoin Mining Council (BMC), a voluntary global forum of Bitcoin mining companies and other companies in the Bitcoin industry, announced the findings of its third quarter 2021 (“Q3”) survey focused on two important metrics: electricity consumption and sustainable power mix.

The BMC revealed that it successfully collected sustainable energy information from over 33% of the current global Bitcoin network in its latest voluntary sector survey. The results of this survey show that the members of the BMC and participants in the survey are currently utilizing electricity with a 65.9% sustainable power mix. Based on this data it is estimated that the global mining industry’s sustainable electricity mix had grown to approximately 57.7%, during Q3 2021, up 3% from Q2 2021, making it one of the most sustainable industries globally.

Moreover, the publication of this data represents the second quarterly release by the BMC, which was founded in May 2021 with support from some of the largest Bitcoin mining companies in the Bitcoin industry along with MicroStrategy and its CEO, Michael Saylor.

In a statement, Mr. Saylor praised the creation of the BMC as an important step to bring more transparency and understanding to the Bitcoin mining industry. He noted that the voluntary submission of Bitcoin mining data by industry participants will help to play an important role in demystifying the Bitcoin mining industry.

“This quarter we saw dramatic improvements to Bitcoin mining energy efficiency & sustainability due to advances in semiconductor technology, the rapid expansion of North American mining, the China Exodus, and worldwide rotation toward sustainable energy & modern mining techniques.” said Mr. Saylor.

The BMC will host a presentation on October 19, 2021, at 5 PM EDT to discuss these results, available here:
