Renewables cheapest source of electricity in 90% of emerging markets: report
REEI 2021/07/19

Renewables are the cheapest source of electricity in 90% of the world’s emerging markets as fossil fuel electricity generation peaked worldwide, a report by India’s Council on Energy, Environment and Water, and Carbon Tracker found out.

“Given renewables are already the cheapest source of new electricity in 90% of the world, emerging markets (non-OECD countries plus Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Costa Rica) have no need to build up huge electricity infrastructure based on fossil fuels,” the report said.

It added that emerging markets have leapfrogged this stage and met the growing demand by deploying clean energy systems powered by wind and solar, with huge potential to boost economic development and bring electricity to millions of more people.
