Renewable electricity is growing rapidly, with solar electricity growing relatively faster than any other fuel source in the last ten years. As the world accelerates its transition to clean energy, it is useful to track the rate of growth, but the data are tracked in different ways from different sources. This periodic publication collects data from multiple sources and presents it systematically as a convenient reference for IEEE JPV readers.
