Could Solar Be the Largest Source of Electricity by 2050?

Could Solar Be the Largest Source of Energy by 2050? Recent studies indicate the answer could be yes. In 2020, solar energy was responsible for 3.3% of global electricity production. It is predicted that the amount of power generated by solar power will rise to 22% of global electricity production by 2050. This rapid growth has spurred manufacturers to build new facilities to accommodate the demand. The upcoming solar power boom is expected to increase production levels by several hundredfold.

The rapid growth in solar power worldwide has made it one of the fastest growing energy sources. By 2050, the total amount of solar power installed in the world will be 65 times higher than it is now. In other words, solar power will be the largest source of energy in the world. This would require an increase in renewable energy incentives by the federal government and a major reduction in the cost of solar power. Fortunately, the costs of solar power have already dropped below natural gas in many parts of the United States.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has released two reports that predict that solar power will be the largest source of electricity worldwide by the year 2050. In fact, solar photovoltaic panels could produce up to 16% of the world’s electricity by 2050. That would be more than twice as large as the next largest source of electricity, fossil fuels. According to the reports, solar panels could generate up to 16% of global electricity by 2050.
