This is music to the ears of readers of The Optimist Daily. An analysis by a long-time renewable energy expert argues with detailed data that key climate solutions have been advancing considerably faster than anyone expected just a few years ago. Just last week, as we reported, a Saudi-backed consortium placed an astonishingly low bid to build a solar farm in Dubai for only 3¢/kWh, half the local price of power from natural gas. Solar and wind have been continuously outperforming expectations for so long that even the International Energy Agency (IEA) — a world leader in analyzing clean energy trends — itself keeps underestimating what’s about to happen.
