The global power industry is characterized by heavy dependence on thermal fuel sources for power generation, as major power-generating countries such as the US, China, Japan, Russia and India have abundant coal reserves. In recent years, significant economic development in China and India and the expansion of the usage of coal resources have driven the rapid growth of thermal production. Just as energy demand continues to increase, supplies of the main fossil fuels used in power generation are becoming more expensive and more difficult to extract.

In contrast to the insecurity surrounding supplies of conventional fuels, and volatile prices, renewable energy is a massive indigenous power source which is permanently available in virtually every country in the world.

The need to achieve energy stability, security of energy supply and energy independence, combined with the need to minimize carbon footprints, are driving countries across the world to explore different renewable energy technologies such as wind, solar, biopower and geothermal. Many countries have implemented mandates supporting the production of renewable power. The European Union (EU), as part of its directive signed by 27 partner countries, aims to increase the share of energy sourced from renewables to 20% by 2020.

During the period 2010-2013, carbon emission by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries was observed to have decreased at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 1%. These countries accounted for around 55% of global carbon emission in 2001. The share of OECD countries in global carbon emissions decreased gradually to a little over 40% by 2013. This includes some of the leaders in renewable power technology in the world. Control in carbon emission by OECD countries can be attributed to increased adoption of renewable energy sources. Non-OECD countries include some of the developing countries which contributed to the increase in global carbon emission in the last decade. Increased energy demand and use of fossil fuels have led to an increase in global carbon emission from 25,597 million tonnes (MT) in 2001 to an estimated 35,441 MT in 2013. An exception was 2009, when carbon emissions declined due to the global economic crisis, lower energy demand, and a strong focus on green energy. Global carbon emissions fell by 2% in 2009 compared to 2008 levels.
