REN21 Renewables 2012 Global Status Report Webinar Series - Africa: on 2012/09/06

REN21’s Renewables 2012 Global Status Report (GSR) speaks to the cumulating effect of steady growth in renewable energy markets, support policies and investment over the past years. In 2011,

  • Renewable sources supplied 16.7% of global final energy consumption. The share of modern renewables increased, while the share of traditional biomass slightly declined.
  • 118 countries –more than half in the developing world– implemented RE targets.
  • Investment in renewables increased 17% to a record $257 billion, despite a widening sovereign debt crisis in Europe and rapidly falling prices for renewable power equipment.
  • Photovoltaic module prices dropped by 50% and onshore wind turbines by close to 10%, bringing the price of the leading renewable power technologies closer to grid parity with fossil fuels such as coal and gas.
A series of webinars will present the report findings with a regional focus.
