Subsidy-free projects emerged in various places and several auction prices were comfortably below those of the fossil-fuel sources. The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) World Energy Outlook 2017 reflected a shift from fossil fuels to renewables. Between 2010 and 2016, global coal-fired capacity added 65GW a year, the highest of any electricity-generating source. By contrast, for the 2017-40 period, anticipated annual additions of coal-fired generation are less than 20GW. Gas-fired facilities are expected to be built at a rate of just under 50GW per year, which is similar to the projection for wind. But solar PV leads the field, with an anticipated build rate of more than 70GW a year. However, wind’s higher productivity means its electricity-producing potential is probably greater. The US Department of Energy’s International Energy Outlook suggests wind will be providing...
