The world as we know it is in transition. In just a few generations, global power supply has been completely transformed. The fuel of the future is clean, green and plentiful; renewables are well and truly on the rise. From the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, Isa Soares looks at a new age for clean energy. With renewables accounting for more than two thirds of the world's new power installations and solar energy employing more people in the United States than fossil fuels, it's fair to say that times are changing. With rapid expansion in Chinese markets causing the cost of solar and wind to plummet, and the green job market booming, the business case for disrupting traditional energy infrastructure has never been greater.
