  • Renewable Market Watch™ Will Participate in the IRENA Innovation Week 2023, "Renewable Solutions to Decarbonise End-use Sectors", in Bonn from 25 to 28 September 2023

    /BONN, September 25, 2023, 9:00 CEST, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Today we are delighted to announce Renewable Market Watch™ will participate in the IRENA Innovation Week, which brings together leaders, experts, industry representatives, academics and policymakers to discuss cutting-edge innovations that can support and accelerate the global energy transition. In 2023, the event will build on previous editions in 2016 and 2018, which examined the decarbonisation of power systems and the integration of variable renewable energy, and the 2020 edition (held virtually) that discussed prospects for decarbonising end-use sectors. Innovation Week 2023 will continue this theme, with a view to expanding shared knowledge on Renewable solutions to decarbonise end-use sectors.

  • Renewable Power Generation Costs Reduction - 2020 Overview in the Recent Study of IRENA Released in 2021 with LCOE of Renewable Energy Technologies

    Europe Corporate PPA small

    /30th June 2021, IRENA, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Between 2000 and 2020, renewable power generation capacity worldwide increased 3.7‑fold, from 754 gigawatts (GW) to 2 799 GW, as their costs have fallen sharply, driven by steadily improving technologies, economies of scale, competitive supply chains and improving the developer experience. Costs for electricity from utility-scale solar photovoltaics (PV) fell 85% between 2010 and 2020. Renewables are becoming more and more competitive in the energy landscape. The data from the IRENA Renewable Cost Database shows cost declines continued in 2020, with the cost of electricity from utility-scale solar photovoltaics (PV) falling 7% year-on-year, offshore wind fell by 9%, onshore wind by 13% and that of concentrating solar power (CSP) by 16%.

    /26th June 2020, IRENA, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ Installing new renewables increasingly costs less than the cheapest fossil fuels. With or without the health and economic crisis, dirty coal plants were overdue to be consigned to the past. Newly installed renewable power capacity increasingly costs less than the cheapest power generation options based on fossil fuels. The cost data presented in the recent comprehensive study from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) confirms how decisively the tables have turned. Next year, up to 1 200 gigawatts of existing coal-fired capacity could cost more to operate than new utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) costs to install, the report shows. Replacing the costliest 500 gigawatts of coal capacity with solar and wind would cut annual system costs by as much as USD 23 billion per year and reduce annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by around 1.8 gigatonnes, or 5% of last year’s global total. It would also yield a stimulus worth USD 940 billion, or around 1% of global GDP.

    Europe Corporate PPA small

    /LONDON, May 9, 2023, 10:00 BST, IRENA, RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) published a new report, 'The Cost of Financing for Renewable Power'. Validated survey and interview results for the cost of capital of renewable power generation technologies were obtained for 45 countries on six continents. A total of 172 valid survey and interview responses were elicited from 56 experts through the survey and 33 experts in semi-structured interviews. The current cost of capital ranges from 1.1% to 12%.

    /21st July 2020, Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE), RENEWABLE MARKET WATCHTM/ In light of the transitory global situation with COVID-19 and the precautionary measures implemented by the Zambia Ministry of Health to quarantine all international travellers for 14 days, ARE has decided to postpone the 6th ARE Energy Access Investment Forum to 17-18 March 2021. EAIF is a well-established political exchange and business event organised by ARE with local and regional partners - aimed at assisting the private and public sector to get up to speed on the latest developments in the off-grid sector and do business. The ARE Forum is supported by our long-standing partner GET.invest, a European programme that mobilises renewable energy investments.

  • SolarPower Summit 2021: Driving Sustainable Change: 10 – 12 May Online

    SolarPower Summit 2021 Small

    /5h April 2021, SolarPower Europe/ Join us for the second digital edition of the SolarPower Summit! The year 2021 is not just “any year”. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, European economies and industrial sectors have been under extreme pressure, and the lives of all Europeans have changed profoundly. The European Recovery Plan adopted by EU Member States in July 2020 aimed not only to mitigate the devastating impacts of the pandemic, but to seize a historic opportunity to revive our economies and industries, placing the fight against climate change at the heart of Europe’s future job creation and growth strategy.

  • SolarPower Summit 2022. Next Level Solar: Shining on the energy transition 31 March, Brussels

    /BRUSSELS, March 10, 2022, 10:00 GMT, SolarPower Europe/ In a world currently facing an array of challenges from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic to a huge hike in energy prices and the looming threat of climate change, solar is coming to the fore as the solution to some of our most pressing issues.

    We know solar can, and must, significantly drive the transition to green energy. In less than ten years, solar power has transformed into the energy solution with the lowest costs and highest flexibility. Innovators are expanding the capabilities of solar technology every day. Manufacturing is making its way back to Europe. The challenge that remains: we need to be faster.

  • SolarPower Summit 2023: Get ready for solar: 8-9 March, Brussels

    Solar Power Summit 2023 small

    /BRUSSELS, January 12, 2023, 10:00 GMT, SolarPower Europe/ The energy crisis is on everyone’s mind. Europe is faced with choices: reinforced dependency on fossil fuels, or stronger energy security? More LNG terminals, or more solar fields? Europe must opt for the right solution to fix the energy crisis. Only solar and renewables will take us out of the energy crisis, strengthen our security, and put us on track to achieve Europe’s urgent climate goals. The energy security finish line is in sight and Europe is equipped with an EU Solar Strategy. But to implement the historic solar expansion we need, we still have hurdles to overcome.
