Renewable energy capacity expands, costs decline globally

As clean technology costs continued to fall, the world added record levels of renewable energy capacity in 2016, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) says in a new report. The global trends analysis finds that wind, solar, biomass and waste-to-energy, geothermal, small hydro, and marine sources added 138.5 gigawatts to global power capacity in 2016, up from 127.5 GW added the previous year.
