Renewable Energy On The Rise
Nov 19, 2020
Eco Marketing Solutions takes a look at this positive trend and how you can join in on it.
Based on findings by the International Energy Agency, renewable electricity installation will hit an all-time high this year.
Renewable energy comes about from renewable resources such as sunlight and wind, and solar power, specifically, has increased by 18 times over the past decade.

Furthermore, at least 30 global nations are using renewable energy for more than 20% of their energy supply. In addition to solar and wind, this can mean hydroelectric, geothermal and bioenergy.
The benefits of renewable energy can include that the supply is limitless (i.e. The sun is always out there, meaning solar power will always be possible.) and that it is a sustainable source; when compared to alternatives such as coal, there are not as many negative environmental factors like the release of pollutant emissions.
However, there are usually quite a few costs associated with this type of energy, which is a top reason that more of the world has not adopted renewable methods.
Still, the fact that renewable electricity installation will hit record growth in 2020… That is promising.
So what can be done in the meantime, to continue this upward trajectory?
You can consider incorporating renewable energy into your home and/or workplace, and a popular way to do so is to turn to solar panels.
You can help reduce air pollution when it comes to transportation (Opt for the subway, a bike or walking instead of driving your vehicle.) and products (Choose eco-friendly as much as possible, especially when it comes to items with fumes like cleaning products.).
And you can purchase environmentally friendly gifts for employees, clients, followers and yourself, such as solar power banks and sustainable gift sets.
