COP19 (19/11/13) – David Renné, President of the International Solar Energy Society, says companies are hoping this COP will provide policy certainty so investors will make a significant contribution to the industry.

Solar will be major contributor to a 100% renewable future thanks to massive cost reductions, which will help it to reach parity with traditional fuels.

Researchers are currently working on improving storage technologies and reducing the variability and fluctuations in electricity it causes to the grid.
