According to the latest report from the UN sponsored organization; the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that sharp greenhouse gas emissions cuts worldwide need to begin now, with a 40 percent to 70 percent reduction by 2050, to avert the worst effects of climate change.
With that being said, there have been significant innovation and development in the alternative energy sector over the last decade. According to the latest report from International Energy Agency, cumulative solar photovoltaic electricity production is about to reach 1 percent of total global electricity production. This increase proves that proliferation of renewable energy is gaining traction in many countries around the world, due to its increasing cost-effectiveness.
I believe that it is imperative that renewables sources of energy to make up the gap in the world’s energy portfolio to prevent catastrophic results that will affect the most vulnerable parts of society, therein lies my desire to be part of this industry and hopefully be part of the solution.
Here is a 10 reason why alternative energy is a smart bet.
