Renewable Energy took the lead

It’s like the passage from film to digital or from fixed phones to mobiles: there is a moment when the switch is done from Old to New and the curves cross themselves, the Upwards goes higher than the Downwads. It’s time for a toast: last year more money was invested in renewable energy sources than in fossils. Here goes:

Global investors spent about $250 billion building new power capacity in 2008, and for the first time the lion’s share of that money went to renewable sources, according to the United Nations Environment Program.

Renewable sources accounted for 56 percent of investment dollars, worth $140 billion, while investment in fossil fuel technologies was $110 billion, the U.N. program said in a report, Global Trends in Sustainable Energy Investment 2009, released on Wednesday and produced in collaboration with New Energy Finance, a research company based in London.
