The latest United Nations Environment Programme report highlights the increasingly important role played by emerging countries concerning investments on renewables: in 2015, emerging countries have, for the first time, invested 156 billion dollars (+19% compared to 2014), against 130 billions from developed countries.
Specifically, China alone invested 103 billion dollars, a 17% increase compared to last year.
India though doesn’t idly stand by: it has a 22% investment growth on last year, amounting at about 10 billion dollars.
This merit list also includes South Africa with 4.5 billion dollars (+ 329%), Mexico with 4 billion dollars (+104%) and Chile with 3.4 billion dollars (+151%).
