The International Renewable Energy Agency has released its REmap 2030, highlighting what it sees as the major trends and opportunities in the renewable energy sector domain in coming years.
The agency, through its document (downloadable here), states that the global renewable energy share can exceed 30% by 2030, and that the “technologies are already available today to achieve this objective.”
It also points out a range of measures and movements ongoing in countries, like Japan, where it says uncertainties over nuclear energy and high gas prices have spurred the nation’s “ambitious renewable energy policy” which was paying dividends and looking set to continue. As of July 2013, Japan was producing more than 4 GW of new renewable power, the report added.
In coming months, the full report will be released with country studies.
