INDUSTRY OVERVIEW MORE EFFICIENT & SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS FOR COSTEFFECTIVE WIND POWER. 6 Energy Transition Renewables as a mainstream fuel When it comes to how we generate power, a lot has changed in the last 15 years. In 2000 renewable energy, excluding hydro, contributed to less than 2 % of the global production of electricity, and by 2013 it constituted more than 6 % with estimates predicting that by 2040 it will account for 18 %. POWER GENERATION BY SOURCE Moreover, this shift over the last 15 years is even more significant since it occurred over a period during which global demand for...
