Accelerating The Global Transition To 100% Renewable Energy

(2017-09-28)As prices for renewables keep falling, global energy transition will happen faster than many think. To accelerate the process, we need innovative political measures.

“More for less” was the story of renewable energy in 2016, according to the latest REN21 report. Although globally new investments in renewables dropped by 23%, a record of 161 gigawatts of new renewable power capacity worldwide was installed.

As costs of solar and wind power keep falling, a global transition to 100% renewable energy is a reality which is unfolding much faster than skeptics think. Already today, wind and solar are the cheapest sources of electricity, and storage technology will soon follow. Disruptive technology improvements in the renewable energy sector as well as the search for real solutions to climate change, air pollution, poverty and refugee crises will accelerate the process.
