The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) latest report found that “in advance of the critical COP21 climate summit in Paris, there’s a clear sign that an energy transition is underway.” The World Energy Outlook 2015 report, published today, found that “renewables contributed almost half of the world’s new power generation capacity in 2014 and have already become the second-largest source of electricity (after coal).”

More than 150 countries have submitted climate pledges ahead of the Paris climate talks, and they are “rich in commitments on renewables and energy efficiency,” says the IEA.
