China Is Showing the World What Renewable Energy Dominance Looks Like

Specifically, the EIA predicted that the country's solar energy capacity would only increase by less than 1 GW (gigawatt) - a blindingly baffling prediction, not simply because the end result was actually 46-times the forecast figure.

China accounted for more than 40 percent of capacity growth in global renewable energy in 2016, which was a record year for worldwide clean energy additions, according to a new study.

The projected growth will be mostly attributed to solar PV upward revisions in China and India, however the USA is also estimated to account for two-thirds of global renewable expansion by 2022.

Though coal remains the largest source of power generation during that period, green power is expected to close the gap in just five years.

Modest growth is expected in the European Union given that the policy landscape after 2020 is not expected to encourage industry investment. Based on this strong performance, the IEA has raised its renewables forecast for 2017 by 12% on past year.

Miley Cyrus has 'spies'
After singing, "I'm sick of wearing this silly dress", Cyrus asked the audience, "But it looks good, doesn't it everybody?" MILEY Cyrus has revealed she has "spies" on set when her fiancé Liam Hemsworth is working with a lovely actress.

The Paris-based IEA said yesterday that China accounted for nearly half of the global expansion of solar power.

"Still, the current uncertainty over proposed federal tax reforms, global trade and energy policies could alter the economic attractiveness of renewables and hamper their growth over our forecast period", the IEA's report read.

The IEA expects China, the US and India to continue dominating the renewables landscape, and forecasts that two-thirds of all new renewable capacity through 2022 will be installed in these three nations.

Researchers from the United Kingdom and China recently announced five new projects to develop the " next generation" of technology in wind and wave power.

Globally, falling auction prices for wind and solar projects have contributed to the rise in new renewable energy capacity.

Net additions to renewable energy capacity in 2016, which include solar, wind, hydropower, bioenergy, wave and tidal, grew by 165 gigawatts (GW), six per cent more than in 2015.

Wind power tariffs in India have dropped to a record low of Rs 2.64 per unit, discovered through the auction for 1,000 MW projects conducted by state-run Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI), an official statement said on Thursday.

IEA said that in the USA, current political uncertainty stemming from the Suniva Section 201 case could alter the economic attractiveness of renewables, thus hampering growth out to 2022.

Even the threat of cheap supplies of natural gas, a major competitor to renewable supplies, is unlikely to keep wind and solar supplies off the market as costs continue to fall.
