BNEF – Overall Clean Energy Investment Slows, Yet Wind Surges To Record Levels

New investment in clean energy worldwide fell 18% last year to $287.5bn, despite a record year for offshore wind, according to latest figures from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Chinese slowdown and falling costs of solar power were two of the reasons. However, even though overall investment in clean energy was down in 2016, the total capacity installed was not. Estimates from BNEF’s analysis teams are that a record 70GW of solar were added last year, up from 56GW in 2015, plus 56.5GW of wind, down from 63GW but the second-highest figure ever.

New Energy Record In UK: Wind Outperforms Coal In 2016

New statistics by Carbon Brief shows that more electricity was generated by wind than coal in 2016. It’s the first time that wind has surpassed coal for an entire year, generating 11.5% of the UK’s power, compared to just 9.2% from coal. Overall, a quarter of the UK’s electricity came from renewables in 2016. This milestone is a significant first for the UK, reflecting a massive decline in coal generation, which contributed just 9.2% of UK electricity last year, with 11.5% from wind. The coal collapse has seen its output fall to the lowest level since 1935.
