Renewables May Become the Dominant Source Of Energy By 2025 In The U.S.


The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) said recently that clean energy sources will be cheaper than fossil fuels by 2020. Question is when will renewables become the dominant source of energy? A survey of 800 key industry figures found that China would be the first country to achieve grid parity, in 2022. Followed by Spain and the United Arab Emirates two years later in 2024. This is the same year that Germany and the UK are expected to see grid parity for wind power followed a year later(2025) by Denmark and the USA.

First thing - too optimistic, maybe? And, more important - what will say about this oil-coal lobby?:)

Obviously, renewables have an upward path. Eighteen percent of all electricity in the United States was produced by renewable sources in 2017, including solar, wind, and hydroelectric dams. That’s up from 15% in 2016.
