Overall Investment Down But Global Renewable Capacity Surges To Record Levels

As the cost of clean technology continues to fall, the world added record levels of renewable energy capacity in 2016, at an investment level 23 percent lower than the previous year, according to new research. For instance, new investment in solar totalled $113.7 billion, down 34 percent from the record high in 2015, yet solar capacity additions rose to an all-time high of 75 gigawatts. “The investor hunger for existing wind and solar farms is a strong signal for the world to move to renewables,” said Prof. Dr Udo Steffens, President of Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, commenting on record acquisition activity in the clean power sector, which rose 17 percent to $110.2 billion.

Today, Every Fifth Utility Company In Germany Offers Photovoltaics To Households

The energy transition is changing the face of the energy market and its stakeholders. For utilities, this process also means a restructuring that will affect all areas. The energy transition involves products and services in the energy efficiency, mobility, electricity and heat sectors. It, therefore, creates numerous opportunities for utilities to grow by coming up with innovative solutions, but it also brings many risks. Customer relationships are changing. Simple power delivery is being replaced by more complex prosumer relationships. The portfolio of utility companies now consists of products such as photovoltaic installations and electrical storage systems, as well as new services in the mobility sector.
