World total primary energy consumption by fuel in 2018[2]

  Coal (27%)
  Natural Gas (24%)
  Hydro (renewables) (7%) Hydro is old tech but is great when there is enough rainfall. 
  Nuclear (4%)
  Oil (34%)
  Others (renewables) (4%) That include biomass. 

 

 

That chart under estimates the % contribution of renewables because most renewables are electricity.

If compared against gas you can assume 1 unit for every 2 units of gas

With Coal its more like 3 

Oil somewhere in between depending on how its being used.
