International Energy Agency: global renewable energy investment needs to triple in the next 10 years

“it is important for policymakers to send clear signals and directions. If the road ahead is only paved with goodwill, it will be a bumpy journey.”

in recent weeks, Asia Energy shortages are widespread in Europe and the United States, and electricity prices have soared to record levels. Demand for fossil fuels is also recovering as governments relax epidemic restrictions

IEA warned that in the rebound of energy investment after the epidemic, renewable energy such as solar energy, wind energy and hydropower and bioenergy need to occupy a larger share

the agency pointed out that renewable energy will account for more than two-thirds of the investment in new power generation capacity this year, but the significant growth in the use of coal and oil has led to the second highest growth in carbon dioxide emissions on record

in 2020, fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas and oil account for nearly 80% of the world’s energy supply, and renewable energy only accounts for 12%

in order to keep the temperature rise at about 1.5 ℃, the IEA predicts that the proportion of fossil fuels in the supply structure by the middle of this century needs to be reduced to slightly less than a quarter, while renewable energy will soar to slightly more than two-thirds

if the world continues to develop according to the existing model, the temperature will rise by 2.6 degrees Celsius by 2100
