  • “Three Amigos” pledge 50% clean power goal by 2025

    Global energy-storage capacity, including via batteries, may reach 325 gigawatts by 2030, up 117% from 2014, according to data from IRENA. Storage demand is set to rise as the grid’s share of energy from variable renewable sources, mainly wind and solar, increases to about 20% from 3%. According to the IRENA report the U.S. grid could accommodate more than 25% of its power coming from renewable sources, up from less than 5% in 2014.

  • Why Solar Energy Has Explosive Potential for Investors

    The rise in average global temperature over the past 50 years has occurred at a higher rate than ever before, and solar photovoltaic power appears poised to help tackle the issue. According to IRENA the amount of global energy generated from PV is expected to grow from 2% in 2016 to 13% in 2030, over six times higher. The expansion of the solar industry is guided by cost reductions, including expected reductions of about 60% over the course of the next decade.
