According to this report, International Energy Agency executive director Nobuo Tanaka believes that wind has the potential to supply 12% of world electricity by 2050, the biggest markets being in China and Europe.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) has the potential to supply 11% of the world electricity by that date.

These figures represent astonishing growth predictions – an additional US$10.5 trillion of investment will be needed to reach the 450 ppm scenario.

Non-OECD countries will account for 93% of the increase in global energy demand by 2030, driven largely by China and India – so make sure you file patents in these countries!
