Global demand for energy is rising fast, and demand for electricity is rising even faster. Unless changes are made, by 2030, global electricity consumption will be close to 30,000 terawatt hours a year (International Energy Agency, World Energy Outlook, 2009).
While increasing demand for power is a reality, climate change is also a serious cause for concern. It is now widely accepted that global temperatures must be limited to a maximum of 2°C above preindustrial levels if the effects of climate change are to be held to an acceptable economic, social and environmental cost.
While the cost of renewable energy is generally higher than that of conventional alternatives, economies of scale and advances in technology are bringing prices down and making the environmental benefits ever more attractive.
