Renewable Energy Revolution: Declining Costs, Surging Capacity

Renewable Energy Revolution: Declining Costs, Surging Capacity | Green Eco energy cyprus | Scoop.it

The renewable energy revolution is under way. Renewable power generation now accounts for around 50% of all new power generation capacity installed worldwide.


The combination of rapid deployment and high learning rates for technology “has produced a virtuous circle that is leading to significant cost declines and is helping fuel a renewable revolution,” according to a new global study of renewable power generation costs in 2012 produced by IRENA, the International Renewable Energy Agency, which announced it isestablishing its global headquarters in the United Arab Emirates during last week’s Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.


Additions to global wind power generation capacity totalled 41 gigawatts (GW) in 2011, according to IRENA’s “Renewable Power Generation Costs in 2012: An Overview.” That’s in addition to 30 GW of new solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity generation capacity, 25 GW of hydro power, 6 GW of biomass, 0.5 GW of concentrated solar power (CSP), and 0.1 GW of new geothermal power capacity.

Greece reveals 724.162 MW of licensed | PV-magazine.com

Greece reveals 724.162 MW of licensed | PV-magazine.com | Green Eco energy cyprus | Scoop.it

Notis Mitarakis, the Greek Deputy Minister of Development, Competitiveness, Infrastructure, Transport and Networks revealed at a press conference last week a list of five photovoltaic projects that have granted by the state the so-called "fast track" status. Once completed, these projects will have a total capacity of 724.162 MW.



Mitarakis told the journalists that "in the coming months we will have the first positive signs from promoting large investment [in Greece]". He accepted that "the Greek legislative framework remains quite complicated" with the issue of co-responsibilities between different governmental agencies being the most significant obstacle. For this reason, the deputy minister added, the Greek Government is now working on a new bill which establishes a General Licensing Directory and which will come into force over the new few months.

 

However, Mitarakis claimed, licensing is not the reason if any "Fast Track" project is not moving at the moment; "any delays are to do with the ability of the investor in this liquidity environment."
