The world's renewable energy capacity is now higher than coal

The world's renewable energy capacity is now higher than coal

will generate enough electricity for 100 percent of energy demand in the United States and Europe by 2021—just five years from now. Despite the massive increases in renewable energy capacity in 2015, more time will be needed to improve grid infrastructure and energy storage systems to handle the output. Ars Technica points out that most renewable energy projects operate at slightly more than 30 percent capacity, meaning we’re only tapping into a third of the potential energy generation. As the price of renewable energy projects continues to fall, the realized electricity output from renewables could surpass coal even earlier than anticipated.
