A new study has been paid to the legend that nations who are developing the world have a " keep burning coal generators, and # 39; show that emerging economies are not just a & # 39; guide global investment and renewable energy energy, but have built their new clean with almost half.
The data, which was collected through the latest Bloomberg Energy Energy Climatescope survey, was launched. show that technology costs are going down and running; making innovative policies for allowing countries to capture energy sovereignty from more energetic countries.
The report shows that developing countries 114GW numbers of carbon-neutral capacity of all kinds, 94GW were wind and other solar.
At the same time, they introduced the lowest number of new coal power capabilities from at least 2006, with a new coal lift in 2017 which was 38 percent lower than the previous year, at 48GW.
That number, saying BloombergNEF, not only represents half of the additions in 2015 when the market increased 97GW of coal that was commissioned, just just half The level of solar and wind power introduced by these countries in 2017.
This is a bad news for an enhanced rural government such as the Australian Consolation Alliance, which is similar to arguing if Australia does not make coal in new plants, other countries will be led by China and China, India and our neighbors, Indonesia.
Instead, the BNEF says, those countries – which, unlike many developing countries, influencing the power demand – play its main role in & # 39; building cheap renewables, and driving down the costs of these energy technologies.
The report states that this trend in global energy power domination is driven by the most rapidly growing economy of clean energy technologies, especially wind and sun.
"Thanks to the special natural resources in many developing countries and the cost of equipment is considerably lower, new renewable projects are now constantly producing new fossil plants at cost – without the benefit subsidies, "he says.
This move has been so obvious, it says, in its shoplet more than 28GW through offers in markets that have a great deal of money. emerging in 2017, which includes developer applications to deliver winds as low as $ 17.7 / MWh and supply for as little as $ 18.9 / MWh.
Climatescope also shows that there is a clean energy dollar; flowing to more than ever possible countries, with 54 developing nations to invest investment in one useful wind farm at least at least 76 countries; get funding for 1.5MW solar projects or more over the year.
"It has been a great deal," said Dario Traum, the senior manager of the BNEF and Climatescope project in the comments that contributed to the report.
"Just a few years ago, some found that countries that were not even better, or even, should not, extend power generation with carbon zones because they were too expensive, "
"Today, these countries manage their case when it comes to use, investment, policy innovation and cost reduction."
But this does not mean that the global climate challenge is not as tolerant.
Although coal capacity increased to the lowest in more than ten years, a generation of 4 per cent coal plants rose in 2017, to 6.4TWh.
And despite many evidence that new renewables can restrict new coal plants, 193GW of coal is currently being built in developing countries today, according to Coalswarm data.
In terms of climate, BNEF says, not just the challenge for renewable energy; affecting new coal power plants for new build opportunities, but to move plants that are now on the coal, many of which have just recently evolved.
Indeed, there seems to be a similar challenge to Australia here – although these coral plants are at the end of their lives, and not at all. the end.
