The evolution and future growth of renewable energy, an infographic

Did you know the first high-power solar cell was developed in 1954? Or that since the late 2000s renewable energy has accounted for over half of new power generating capacity in Europe?

And with new technological advances on the horizon, the future continues to look bright for renewable energy.
