In 2016, the landscape for renewables looks
encouraging and challenging. The recent
enthusiastic buzz and public support surrounding
renewable energy confronts doubt despite decades
of roughly 30% annual growth in solar and wind
production. Costs of renewables are dropping
rapidly, as photovoltaic modules costs have fallen by
approximately 10% per year over the past 30 years
and the costs of wind turbines by roughly 5%. Yet,
still only 23% of installed capacity is from renewable
resources. Why not a higher percentage?
