Yet Annual Growth in New Renewable Power Is Seen Slowing and Stabilizing After 2014
September 17, 2014
Power generation from renewable sources such as solar, wind, and hydro grew strongly in 2013, reaching almost 22 percent of global generation, and was on par with electricity from gas, whose generation remained relatively stable, according to a new report from the International Energy Agency (IEA).
Renewable power sources — including hydrokinetic, biomass, geothermal, wind, and solar — make up 10 percent of total electricity production in the United States. While the media have highlighted failures by renewable energy companies, North America leads the world in terms of additions of new renewable energy capacity.
Renewable power generation is expected to continue its rapid growth over the next five years, according to a new report from the International Energy Agency (IEA). Global power generation from solar, wind, hydropower, and other renewable sources is projected to increase by more than 40 percent.
