The total worldwide electricity cumulative installed capacity topped 5,026 GW in 2010 and cumulative installed capacity is expected to grow to 6,416 GW in 2016 with a CAGR of 4 % over the next five years.

Volatility in fossil fuel costs, coupled with the environmental problems associated with the burning of such f

uels, could be a positive factor that are driving the increased acceptance of alternative technologies, especially for environmental friendly technologies such as wind and solar. Although the high cost and variability challenges, faced by the renewable energy sources poses some challenge but, the new innovations are expected to reduce the cost of electricity and renewable energy is expected to witness the robust growth in near future.

Lucintel’s research indicates that, the levelized cost of energy for natural gas is the lowest $ 62/MWh whereas solar PV has the highest LCOE at $ 253/MWh. The LCOE of wind energy is high due to increase in the price of wind turbines. A substantial decrease is expected in the cost of solar PV because of decline in the cost of the solar modules which are largely driven by decreases in the price of raw materials (e.g. Polysilicon) and increased competition among polysilicon suppliers. The LCOE for solar PV is expected to be $ 223/MWh in Q4 2012.

Although conventional energy sources are the biggest and by far the largest source of energy today but conventional sources are making way for the non conventional energy sources because of their finite existence and their increasing footprint.
