Wind and solar power will account for 96% of the total power supply of renewable energy sources by 2050, report says

Finland’s LUT University and the Energy Watch Group released the “Global Energy System Based on 100% Renewables. Power, Heat, Transport and Desalination Sectors” study, which simulates a transition to 100% renewable energy of the entire world, structured in nine major regions and 145 sub-regions on an hourly resolution of 5-year time periods from 2015 until 2050. The modelling computes the cost-optimal mix of technologies, based on locally available renewable energy sources.

According to the report, the transition to a global energy system based on 100% renewables can be achieved before 2050 if a strong policy framework is implemented.
