Despite lower costs renewables are still lagging in actual energy production
...This data was buried in the story, but it demonstrates that despite lower prices for renewable energy production it is still a laggard at actually producing energy. Investments in fossil fuels still give you more energy and on a more dependable basis than the alternative energy investments.
Investment in power generated from fossil fuels was roughly half that of renewables last year, according to the report , which is based on data from Bloomberg New Energy Finance.
The proportion of electricity coming from renewable sources, not including large hydropower plants, rose from 10.3 percent to 11.3 percent in 2016.
