Global Renewable Energy Outlook Report 2018 -


The "Global
Renewable Energy Outlook, 2018"
report has been added to's

The renewable energy outlook finds that the global market will close out
2018 with 154.6 GW of new renewable power generation capacity and $228.3
billion in investments.

The investments in power generation is forecast to decline slightly by
(-0.7%) over 2017 due to reductions in solar capacity additions in
China, but this restraint will be offset by the growth in most
technologies and regions.

Wind and solar PV will continue to grow strongly, while biomass,
geothermal, and small hydro will expand steadily but at a slower pace,
and the ocean power sector will strive to get the right support to take

Renewable technologies are being adopted rapidly across all regions,
with very few countries being left out of the market. Latin America, and
Africa and the Middle East will experience the greatest growth in
installed capacity during 2018, at 20.1% and 52.3%, respectively, due to
their small installed base. Asia will be responsible for 58% of the
total capacity growth in 2018.

Globally, feed-in-tariffs (FiTs) have been the preferred method to
obtain investments in renewables. However, an increasing number of
countries are progressively cutting subsidies, compelling the renewables
industry to rely on competitive auctions and private sector power
purchase agreement (PPAs).

Key Issues Addressed

  • What is the expected annual investment for each renewable technology
    type in 2018 in key regions?

    2018 and what is the projected capacity for 2025?
  • What are the key trends that are likely to impact the renewable energy
    industry moving forward?
  • Which are the key companies participating in the industry by renewable
    technology type?
  • What are the key regional trends that industry participants must
