What are the current trends in renewable energy?

Renewables are now a mainstream option in the power sector in nearly all parts of the world. In 2018, over 90 countries had more than 1 GW of renewable power capacity installed, and 30 countries had more than 10 GW. Renewable power capacity grew 8% in 2018, led by wind energy and solar PV. For the fourth straight year, more renewable power capacity was installed than fossil fuel and nuclear power combined, and renewables now account for over one third of global power capacity.
