Thinking big with small-scale renewables

Clean energy that comes in small-scale units, like wind turbines, solar PV and energy-efficient appliances, offers significant fundamental advantages over large-scale alternatives in terms of speed to install, lower commercial risk, and potential for faster learning and improvement.

Last week Climate Spectator highlighted that over the past decade, and in the decade to come, smaller-sized clean energy technologies such as solar PV, energy efficient appliances, and wind power were winning the clean energy race over large unit-sized power generation such as coal with carbon capture and storage. 

This cannot be explained as just a function of greater government support.
