According to the BloombergNEF report, for the first time in history, sources such as the sun and wind are responsible for the majority of electricity generation in the world. Together, solar and wind energy creates more than 2/3 of our power. In 2010, it was less than a quarter. The rapid growth is a result of reducing technology costs and global efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
The experts do not hide their optimism. This is the first time in history that renewable energy sources are accounted for the majority of generated electricity. More and more countries decide to go with such solutions. There is still a long way to go, and there is still a lot of work to be done, but such reports give hope to the hearts of ecologists that humanity is indeed taking the fight against climate change more seriously. Let’s Keep it up.
