  • Sheltered from biggest risks, green fuel to ride out oil crash

    Improved technology means onshore wind is often the cheapest energy, with costs as low as 4 U.S. cents per kilowatt hour, although offshore is still expensive at 10-22 cents kWh, IRENA said. New renewable energy investment in 2015 rose to $280 billion, up from $270 billion in 2014, IRENA said, adding the growth would continue.

  • Green jobs boom: meet the frontline of the new solar economy

    While the price of oil is plummeting, taking with it a significant number of jobs, the renewable energy job market is booming. It is estimated that it will grow to 24m jobs worldwide by 2030 up from 9.2m reported in 2014 according to analysis by IRENA which predicts that doubling the proportion of renewables in the global energy mix would increase GDP by up to $1.3tn across the world.
