Renewables to overtake nuclear, natural gas

Power generated from renewable sources such as solar could overtake natural gas and nuclear generated power by as early as 2016.

According to a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA), renewable power is expected to grow by 40% in the next five years, despite current difficulties.

By 2018, renewables could account for almost a quarter of the global energy mix, making it the second-biggest sector after coal generation.

This is great news - It means that when you take the renewable plunge you can feel confident that you are swimming in the right direction.  Who would keep putting money into fossil fuel generation knowing that it is getting ever harder and expensive to collect, and is killing a positive future for our children ?
