India provides unprecedented opportunities to scale solar and wind power, making it one of the forerunners of a world heading towards a sustainable future. However, there is one basic challenge that India must face: the intermittency of renewables. The article by Peter Freudenstein, an energy and climate change policy analyst and a Mercator Fellow, suggests methods that India can adopt to solve its problem. Weiterlesen

General overview
China is both the world’s biggest clean energy investor and the world’s largest CO2 emitter. It is on track to becoming the world’s renewable energy superpower: China is the world’s largest producer, exporter and installer of solar panels, wind turbines, batteries and electric vehicles.

Even though renewable energy investments declined from $122 billion in 2017 to $86 billion in 2018, China still has by far the largest capacity. It also has a clear lead in terms of the underlying technology, with well over 150,000 renewable energy patents as of 2016, 29% of the global total. The next closest country is the U.S., which had a little over 100,000 patents, with Japan and the E.U. having close to 75,000 patents each.

The share of non-fossil fuels in China’s total electricity mix is on course to hit 32-34% in 2020. With increasing demand, China added about 40 GW of solar and 40 GW of coal in 2019. There is a lot of room for renewable energy, since coal’s share in China’s primary energy mix was still 58% in 2018 and electricity demand keeps growing. Weiterlesen

Der Solarmarkt ist, ob in Bezug auf die Gestehungskosten oder der installierten Leistung, den Kinderschuhen entwachsen.

Märkte wie Indien wachsen schnell und bieten attraktive Rentabilitäten. Die Konkurrenz wird grösser und professioneller. Verständlicherweise will Indien für seine Volkswirtschaft und für eine nachhaltigere Stromversorgung vom eigenen Markt profitieren. Doch die Europäer und Chinesen wollen sich dieses Absatzgebiet nicht entgehen lassen und positionieren sich stark.
