New UN report takes stock of renewable energy’s decade-long growth spurt

first_img2018 was the ninth year in a row in which renewable energy capacity investments exceeded $200 billion and the fifth year in a row in which they exceeded $250 billion, according to a report released by the UN ahead of the Climate Action Summit to be held in New York City later this month.That means that, by the time it’s over, the current decade — 2010 to 2019 — will have seen a total of $2.6 trillion in renewable energy investments and a four-fold increase in global renewable energy capacity (excluding large hydroelectric dams, i.e. those with electricity generation capacity of 50 megawatts or more).Of all the major generating technologies, including those that burn fossil fuels, solar accounts for 638 GW of new power capacity installed since 2010, the largest single share claimed by any technology. Coal-fired power comes in second at 529 GW, wind in third at 487 GW, and gas in fourth at 438 GW. Thanks to the nearly $280 billion invested in electricity generation from renewable sources last year — three times the amount invested in coal and gas-fired generation capacity combined — a record 167 gigawatts of new renewable energy capacity was installed around the globe, beating the previous record of 160 gigawatts set in 2017.2018 was the ninth year in a row in which renewable energy capacity investments exceeded $200 billion and the fifth year in a row in which they exceeded $250 billion, according to a report released by the UN ahead of the Climate Action Summit to be held in New York City later this month. That means that, by the time it’s over, the current decade — 2010 to 2019 — will have seen a total of $2.6 trillion in renewable energy investments and a four-fold increase in global renewable energy capacity (excluding large hydroelectric dams, i.e. those with electricity generation capacity of 50 megawatts or more).By the close of 2009, the world was capable of producing 414 gigawatts (GW) of energy from renewable sources like wind, solar, and geothermal, the report states. When 2019 comes to an end, the world is projected to have just over 1,650 GW of renewable generation capacity.Half of the investments made since 2010 went towards building out solar capacity, with the result being that more gigawatts of solar energy were installed over the past decade than any other generation technology. There will be 663 GW of solar capacity by the end of 2019, per the report, up from 25 GW at the beginning of the decade.Jon Moore, CEO of BloombergNEF (BNEF), the research company that provided the data and analysis for the report, noted that a major factor in the growth of clean energy technologies is their falling cost, which has made them increasingly competitive with fossil-fueled electricity generation.“Sharp falls in the cost of electricity from wind and solar over recent years have transformed the choice facing policy‐makers,” Moore said in a statement. “These technologies were always low-carbon and relatively quick to build. Now, in many countries around the world, either wind or solar is the cheapest option for electricity generation.”Germany’s Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, Svenja Schulze, says that his country will be producing at least two-thirds of its electricity from renewable sources within the next 10 years. But he added that, despite the gains made by the renewable sector over the past decade, the pace of investments in clean energy — and the phasing out of fossil fuels like coal — must be ratcheted up even further.“We are demonstrating that an industrial country can phase out coal and, at the same time, nuclear energy without putting its economy at risk. We know that renewables make sense for the climate and for the economy,” Schulze said in a statement. “Yet we are not investing nearly enough to decarbonize power production, transport and heat in time to limit global warming to 2C or ideally 1.5C. If we want to achieve a safe and sustainable future, we need to do a lot more now in terms of creating an enabling regulatory environment and infrastructure that encourage investment in renewables.”Solar accounts for 638 GW of the 2,366 GW of new power generation capacity the world netted since 2010, the largest single share claimed by any technology, including those that burn fossil fuels. Coal-fired power comes in second at 529 GW, wind in third at 487 GW, and gas in fourth at 438 GW.In total, renewables supplied 12.9 percent of global electricity consumption last year, up from 11.6 percent in 2017. The UN report estimates that about 2 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions were avoided in 2018 alone due to renewable energy usage. The energy sector globally was responsible for about 13.7 billion metric tons of CO2 emissions in 2018.“Investing in renewable energy is investing in a sustainable and profitable future, as the last decade of incredible growth in renewables has shown,” said Inger Andersen, Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme. (Andersen appeared on the Mongabay Newscast back in January 2019, when she was still director general of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature).“But we cannot afford to be complacent. Global power sector emissions have risen about 10 per cent over this period. It is clear that we need to rapidly step up the pace of the global switch to renewables if we are to meet international climate and development goals.”The Solar Settlement, a sustainable housing community project in Freiburg, Germany.

What’s at stake after Chile cancels its hosting of COP25?

Chilean President Sebastián Piñera announced on Oct. 30 that his country was cancelling the 25th annual United Nations climate conference due to the social crisis that has swept the country in the past two weeks.The meeting, known as the Conference of the Parties or COP 25, was scheduled to be held in the capital Santiago from Dec. 2-13.“This has been a very hard decision to make and it causes us much pain because we understand the importance of the COP for Chile and for the world,” Piñera said in a statement from the governmental palace. He said the decision was based on “the wise principle of common sense” since “as the president of all Chileans I always have to put their problems, interests, needs, desires, and hopes at the top of the list.”This is the first time that the annual U.N. climate conference has been cancelled.“We are currently exploring alternative hosting options,” Patricia Espinosa, the executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), said in a statement on Oct 30.A day later, in another statement, Espinosa said that Spain had offered to hold the conference on the same dates in Madrid.The Putaendo River hasn’t had water for years and has become a dumpsite. Image by Michelle Carrere.What’s at stake?“This meeting was key at the global level to get to the 2020 climate summit with new commitments,” said Ricardo Bosshard, director of WWF Chile, as the commitments made at the 2015 COP in Paris expire next year. He added that the Paris commitments were “unambitious” and “not being met.”Manuel Rodríguez Becerra, Colombia’s former environment minister, said that “The voluntary national goals are not leading us to the path of not increasing the temperature of the planet by 1.5 degrees Centigrade [2.7 degrees Fahrenheit] but [rather] on a path of [an increase of] 2 or 3 degrees [3.6 to 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit], which, as has already been said, is not enough.”For that reason, COP25 had the significant challenge of increasing ambitions in the fight against climate change.In addition, at the Latin American level, this COP was expected to bring agreements to stop forest degradation and restore large areas of forest. Agreements were also expected for ocean protection. All of these demands “are still present because global emergencies are still as urgent as they were one week or one day ago,” Bosshard said.The question now is where the conference will take place, “because we need to get to Glasgow with many solutions.” COP26 is scheduled for Glasgow, Scotland, in November 2020.The Putaendo River Valley, where only 31.6 millimeters (1.24 inches) of rain has fallen this year. Image by Michelle Carrere.The optionsAccording to Rodríguez, the possibility of holding the COP in Costa Rica could be explored. The country had been helping organize the meeting in Chile. “What is certain is that it won’t happen on the scheduled date,” he said.Peru’s former environment minister and now WWF’s climate and energy leader, Manuel Pulgar-Vidal, said the COP “is a very big event for any country, even for a developed one, and it requires logistics that cannot be arranged at such short notice.” For Pulgar-Vidal, who presided over COP20 in Lima in 2014, the most realistic option would be to hold the event during the “intersessional” meeting scheduled for June 2020 in Bonn, Germany, or to hold an additional intersessional meeting.He said that intersessional meetings, which take place throughout the year, are led mainly by negotiators, while the COP is a key event where leaders meet to make decisions that are important to the process of tackling climate change. If the COP were to happen in one of these situations, “The leaders should be invited to make the decisions they were expected to make in December this year,” Pulgar-Vidal said, adding that it was unlikely they would be able to bring together all heads of state at an intersessional meeting.The COP is also a space where other actors from the private sector, civil society, indigenous groups and academia meet. The cancellation of the event also suggests that these connections won’t happen in the short term.“Hundreds of organizations from the private sector and NGOs participate in a COP, and that is not often replicated in an intersessional [meeting],” Pulgar-Vidal said.He added that he remains optimistic, even though “the process of the negotiation is going to be a bit delayed.”“Many times crises have been the catalyzer of new decision-making,” he said, adding that he thought the world would remain committed to agreeing on the need to continue to address the climate “emergency” we face.Land cracked by drought. Image by Michelle Carrere.Chile’s environmental demandsThe decision by Piñera to cancel his country’s hosting of the COP was precipitated by massive protests nationwide stemming initially from a hike in subway fares. The protesters have since seized on other issues, including high living costs and growing economic inequality, and their confrontations with the security forces have frequently turned violent. As of Oct. 29, Chile’s National Human Rights Institute (INDH) had recorded 1,233 people hospitalized as a result of these clashes and 3,712 arrested. Twenty people have died. The INDH has also taken up 138 legal cases, 92 of them relating to illegal mistreatment or torture, 18 to sexual violence, and five related to homicide allegedly committed by the authorities.Environmental problems rank among the concerns being raised by the protesters, along with pensions, health care, education, and justice. Among the environmental issues making headlines even before the protests began in mid-October is the serious drought that has intensified this year. Another is the unequal distribution of water. Residents of central Chile complain that the agriculture industry is taking most of the water, leaving little for human consumption. There are also complaints about the severe pollution in the so-called sacrifice zones in northern and central Chile and the damage it has caused over years to the health of the local population. Other issues include lithium mining in the north of Chile, which scientists, experts and residents say is causing a decrease in the water levels in the Salar de Atacama Basin.More than a million Chileans have taken to the streets to demand that the government take immediate action to address these issues.In his speech on Oct. 30, Piñera reaffirmed Chile’s commitment to the COP and said that “In this matter, [Chile] has [provided] firm, clear and recognized leadership.” He also said the country has adopted commitments to fight climate change and global warming, focusing especially on ocean protection, decarbonizing the country before 2050, and forest conservation.Banner image of the Salar de Atacama Basin by Francesco Mocellin via Wikimedia Commons (CC BY-SA 3.0).FEEDBACK: Use this form to send a message to the author of this post.
