Global Renewables Rise, China Winning the Clean Energy Race

Global Renewables Rise, China Winning the Clean Energy Race says a UNEP report, even as investment drops, writes Sophie Yeo at Responding to Climate Change. Renewable energy grew to produce 8.5% of total electricity in 2013, including 44% of new installations.

As it is, global clean energy investment reached $254 billion in 2013 – no small potatoes. And for the second straight year, China has outpaced the US in annual clean energy investment, according to a new report from Pew Charitable Trust. Anyone in Congress listening?

Don’t think too hard on this one…

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
