Renewables could cut the health impacts of air pollution from power generation up to 80%

Renewable energies such as solar, wind, and hydropower have several features including being cost-effective, abundant, and zero greenhouse gas emissions, especially CO2. The latter is a crucial point to motivate politicians and inform the public about the climate change problem.

As an example based on realistic data of global actions in the solar energy sector, we recently mentioned in one of our posts that the global cumulative solar PV installation in 2018  made only 0.8% reduction in global CO2 emissions. It should be mentioned that the total CO2 emission in 2018 was 37100 Mt (million tons). 

According to IEA, the world must do much more to slash emissions if it is aimed to defuse the climate change time bomb and deliver sustainable energy for a growing population.

Based on the research at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), there is a scenario where the majority of energy is derived from solar and wind power could cut adverse health effects from electricity production by 80 percent compared with our current fossil-heavy economies.
