Market Report Series: Renewables 2017

The IEA’s newly renamed Renewables 2017 (formerly titled Medium-Term Renewable Energy Market Report) provides a detailed market analysis and overview of renewable electricity capacity and generation, biofuels production, and heat consumption, as well as a forecast for the period between 2017 and 2022.

This year’s report also provides additional analysis on the contribution of electric vehicles to renewable road transport and on the off-grid solar market in Africa and developing Asia.

The report identifies a set of policy improvements in key markets that could accelerate the growth of renewables in the electricity sector as well as the growth of transport biofuels for the first time. These are needed to accelerate decarbonisation in all sectors in order to be on track to meet long-term climate goals.

A detailed overview with tables and pictures, and both English version and Chinese version of the executive summary can be downloaded for free, while the full report needs to be purchased (more information can be found on IEA’s website).
