Where is the renewable industry headed?

  • Renewable energy, particularly solar and wind power, has seen significant growth in the power sector. Solar photovoltaic installations have increased by 26 times since 2010, while onshore wind power has grown five-fold. However, deployment remains concentrated in a few countries, highlighting the need for global expansion and the need for continuous investments along the next years.

  • Cumulative solar capacity consistently increasing: By the end of 2020, the world's cumulative solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity reached a remarkable milestone of over 773 gigawatts (GW).

  • Wind Power Expansion: Wind energy is also rapidly expanding. As of 2020, the global wind capacity exceeded 743 GW, with China, the United States, and Germany leading the way.
