Doubling the share of renewables in the global energy mix by 2030 can save up to USD 4.2 trillion annually by 2030, according to a new report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). Savings would be up to 15 times higher than costs, thanks to avoided expenditures on air pollution and climate change.
The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) released this week the “Renewable Energy and Jobs – Annual Review 2015“ report, which states that more than 7.7 million people worldwide are now employed by the renewable energy industry. This is an 18 per cent increase from last year’s figure of 6.5 million.
Bahamas Minister of Housing and the Environment the Hon. Kenred Dorsett said officials from the Ministry of the Environment are holding meetings with representatives from the Carbon War Room (CWR) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) as the Government progresses with its renewable energy agenda.
