China, U.S. Made 2020 a Record Year for Renewable Power Growth
April 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
A record amount of renewable energy capacity was built last year, thanks largely to investments in China and the U.S., according to the International Renewable Energy Agency.
Renewables — mostly in the form of wind and solar — accounted for 82% of new electricity installation in 2020, said Abu Dhabi-based Irena, which advises governments on clean power. China added 136 gigawatts, more than half the total and a similar amount to Spain’s overall power production.
