This analysis looks at how project risks and risk perception for wind and solar have evolved from 2011 to 2020 to understand the impact of policies on the RE sector. It tracks the credit ratings of wind and solar projects and maps them against significant RE policies on a timeline.

How can the ocean contribute renewable energy to the African ‘Blue Economy’, bringing opportunities to millions of Africans and reducing or replacing carbon emissions, and which strategic actions can help it reach this potential?

In its journey towards the 175 GW renewable energy capacity target by December 2022, India surpassed the 100 GW milestone in August 2021. With just over a year remaining for the target deadline, have a lot of ground to cover.

Hydropower is typically subject to strong seasonality’s, driven by rainfall patterns, snowmelt and other hydrological phenomena.

New restrictions on banking of power will inhibit the growth of the rooftop and open-access solar market, and potentially slow progress towards India’s national target of 450 gigawatts (GW) of installed renewable capacity by 2030, according to a new briefing note by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) and JMK Resear

Off-grid electricity production from renewables, although largely unrecorded in most countries, is believed to be expanding rapidly.

The Africa Energy Futures: Horizon 2030 report released by DLA Piper Africa takes an in-depth look at the energy transition in Africa. Analysing 21 countries, the report also forecasts challenges and opportunities that will arise in the next five to ten years.

Renewables 2021 is the IEA’s primary analysis on the sector, based on current policies and market developments. It forecasts the deployment of renewable energy technologies in electricity, transport and heat to 2026 while also exploring key challenges to the industry and identifying barriers to faster growth.

Developed by Germanwatch, NewClimate Institute and CAN, the CCPI analyses and compares climate change mitigation efforts across 60 countries (plus EU as a whole) with the highest emissions. Together these countries account for 90 percent of global emissions.

A robust regulatory framework is critical to the development of the renewable energy sector. This will be increasingly important going ahead, as India begins to integrate a significantly larger amount of renewable energy into its energy mix.
