The 2020 U.S. Renewable Energy Outlook

? “The pipeline of wind and solar projects under development in the U.S. has ballooned as renewable energy developers race to qualify for expiring tax incentives, with the production tax credit for wind farms scheduled to expire at the end of 2019 and the investment tax credit for solar plants slated to begin phasing down in 2020.” ―S&P Global [12 pp.]

Global Trends in Renewable Energy

? “Although hydropower is still the main source of renewable energy with the cheapest LCOE, rapidly falling costs have made solar PV the largest market for new investment. In fact, unsubsidized solar PV-generated electricity has now become cost competitive with fossil fuels in a number of locations around the world.” ―KPMG [16 pp.]

Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (US D.O.E) 2016–2020 Strategic Plan and Implementing Framework

? “Our national imperative is clear: win the clean energy race. This would ensure that the United States captures a significant and growing share of the multi-trillion dollar global clean energy market and the jobs, energy security and other opportunities that will be created along the way.” ―Dr. David T. Danielson, Assistant Secretary [33 pp.]
