  • Scaling up our clean energy deployment is essential to lowering our emissions.
  • A majority of these investments went to traditional renewables such as solar or wind, while alternatives like carbon capture received far less.

“Global investment in the low-carbon energy transition was $501.3 billion in 2020, up 9% from 2019 despite the pandemic driving the world into a recession.”
