Renewables take a starring role post the pandemic
Renewables will take a starring role over the next decade, with solar power taking centre stage. Solar PV is now consistently cheaper than new coal- or gas-fired power plants in most countries, and solar projects now offer some of the lowest-cost electricity ever seen. Storage will play an increasingly vital role in ensuring the flexible operation of power systems. These are some of the findings in the World Energy Outlook 2020, the International Energy Agency’s flagship publication, that can be found here.
