Fossils Losing Advantage Over Solar

According to the IEA, the cost of renewable technologies, particularly solar PV, have declined significantly over the past five years. Meanwhile, the costs of power generation from gas and goal have risen over the same five-year period, indicating they are “roughly on par,” said Foratomic Energy. The costs are expected to continue in this direction with coal plants becoming as much as 70% more expensive.
