The need for clean energy technology deployment towards global net-zero emissions is becoming more critical. To meet the net-zero emission target in 2030 and reduce global energy consumption to 7% less than the level in 2020, a massive deployment of clean energy technologies is needed.
That means the capacity addition of solar PV and wind power in 2030 needs to increase up to four times that of the 2020 level. The share of electric vehicles (EVs) is expected to be 60% of global car sales in 2030.
