In the world renewable energy is becoming more competitive compared to traditional ones. This becomes possible due to the government policy in many countries and significant reduction in the cost of "clean" technologies and equipment. For example, from 2010 to 2017, the cost of installing solar power plant in the world has fallen by 73%.
”The new global energy paradigm that is emerging is more sustainable and has greater socioeconomic benefits for an unprecedented number of people”, said Adnan Z. Amin, IRENA Director-General.
