Energy, the world’s largest industry, is currently undergoing a revolution. A switch towards renewable energy sources from the traditional fossil fuels we have relied upon to advance industrial and economic growth is underway. https://re-work.co/blog/reinventing-energy-chris-goodall-the-switch-renewable-solar-power

"We are beyond the tipping point of grand energy transition," said Christoph Frei, secretary general of the World Energy Council (WEC).

A new report from the WEC says that renewable sources of power, including hydroelectric and solar, represent around 30% of the world's total capacity and 23% of total global electricity production. The WEC said in a news release that in the last 10 years, wind and solar power had seen "explosive average annual growth" of 23% and 50%.

"The success of both the development of intermittent renewables and their efficient integration in electricity systems fundamentally depends on the right market design and regulatory framework and solid regional planning to avoid bottlenecks," Christoph Frei, secretary general of the WEC, said in a statement.

The report comes in the wake of last year's historic COP21 agreement in Paris. There, global leaders agreed to make sure global warming stayed below 2 degrees Celsius and to also pursue efforts to limit the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Surprising Countries Where Solar & Wind Are Booming
Renewable energy is taking off in both wealthy and developing economies.

Across the globe, renewable energy is expanding faster than fossil fuels. “Once again in 2014, renewables made up nearly half of the net power capacity added worldwide,” says Achim Steiner, executive director of the United Nations Environment Programme. After a two-year dip, they’re attracting more investment. Hydropower generates the largest share of renewable energy, followed by wind and biomass, but solar is growing the fastest.

Some countries are obvious leaders. The U.S. and China had the greatest installed capacity for producing power from wind in the last two years, while Germany and China had the most from solar panels, according to the U.S. Department of Energy and Ren21, an international nonprofit group.

Yet five smaller or developing countries are also showing their green potential. Find out which ones they are: http://gplnk.co/2d5NlJp
