At the forthcoming UN climate talks, diplomats will push for a tripling of renewable power by 2030. A new analysis finds the world is likely already on track to hit this goal.

Renewable capacity has grown at a rate of 17 percent per year since 2016. Maintaining this pace through the end of the decade would put the world on course for 11 terawatts of renewable power, according to a new analysis from Ember, an energy think tank.

“Leaders should be confident in supporting a global goal to triple renewables,” said Katye Altieri, global analyst at Ember. “It is looking more possible than ever to achieve.”
