REN21 Renewables Global Status Report 2015 is Positive

We at GroundWork are very excited to play a small part in helping to stabilize global carbon emissions associated with energy consumption. Highlights from the Renewables Global Status Report 2015 include:

“Solar PV capacity has grown at the most phenomenal rate — up 48-fold over the 10 years from 2004 to 2014 (3.7 GW to 177 GW). Rapidly falling costs have made unsubsidized solar-generated electricity more cost-competitive, fuelling the record-breaking 40 GW added capacity installed in 2014.”

“the report notes that for the first time in four decades global carbon emissions associated with energy consumption remained stable in 2014, despite a 1.5 percent increase in energy use and 3 percent growth in global GDP.”
