Webcast on Wind: Global Renewable Energy Investment Trends | China Edition
About the Webcast
In 2018, the global clean energy investment totalled $332.1 billion and observed its fifth year in a row to have exceeded the $300 billion mark. While solar saw a drop-down of 24%, investment in wind rose 3% to $128.6 billion with offshore wind featured strongly and attracted $25.7 billion. As the world’s largest renewable energy market, China accounted for 45% of total global clean energy investment in 2018. Currently, China is shifting away from the government regulated feed-in tariff to auctions and eventually to subsidy-free onshore wind and offshore wind. Is this going to slow down the country’s investment in clean energy? How will the Chinese renewable energy market look like moving forward?
