Renewables 2017 Global Status Report

The Renewables 2017 Global Status Report (GSR) published by REN21 gives an overview on the current state of renewable energy. It provides tables, charts and figures on renewable energies and respective investments, price developments, capacity additions and power generation, both in general and in detail for the different renewable energy sources. Accordingly, additions in installed renewable power capacity reached a new record in 2016 but investments were decreased slightly compared to 2015. In addition, the report also addresses the integration of renewables into grids and the innovation in storage technologies as well as fossil fuel subsidies and energy-related CO2 emissions more generally.
