Dublin, Nov. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ResearchAndMarkets.com published a new article on the renewable energy industry "Renewable Energy to Represent Almost 90% of Total Power Capacity for 2020"
Global renewable power capacity will increase by 200 gigawatts or 7% by the end of 2020 according to a new report published by the International Energy Agency. This marks a new record for annual growth in the renewable energy sector and was driven by a surge in new projects from the US and China. Both countries saw a 30% increase in wind and solar as developers took advantage of financial incentives due to expire at year end. The report predicts that almost 90% of new electricity installed this year will come from renewable sources with the remaining 10% coming from fossil fuels.
Furthermore, it is expected that India and the EU will drive an expansion of global renewable capacity additions of nearly 10% next year due to the commissioning of projects that were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. If this growth continues as expected, wind and solar capacity could increase by 1,123 gigawatts in 2024 and renewable energy could become the world's largest source of electricity by 2025.
