Renewable Energy to Surge, Costs to Fall According to Groundbreaking New Report May 7, 2011 : 4:41 PM

An Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Special Report report due to come out on May 9th came to some fascinating conclusions to those working to solve the climate crisis:

"The cost of most renewable energy technologies has declined and significant additional technical advancements are expected," the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said, based on a review of 164 expert scenarios.

"Further cost reductions are expected, resulting in greater potential for climate change mitigation and reducing the need for policy measures to ensure rapid deployment," the draft said.

It said most scenarios pointed to a "substantial increase in the deployment of renewable energy by 2030, 2050 and beyond."
