The United Nations Environment Programme issued a report showing that global investment in renewable energy, which had fallen between 2011 and 2013, recovered in 2014 to about $270 billion, all-time in this type of investment.

China, United States and Japan are at the forefront of investment in renewable energy. According to the international economic report, investments went from 8.5% to 9.1% of world electricity production in 2014. Although a slow walk, the emerging economies, including Colombia, also added to these processes.

This trend allows that the most important news on the energy front is not the fall of oil prices, but the change in the use of traditional energy by renewable in the most relevant productive fronts of the planet.

An example of this is what is happening with the batteries market, which has shown that the more the sector is strengthened, more costs are saved in its processes according to a study called – natural climate changes-.

“From 2007 to 2011, the average costs for electric vehicles with batteries fell in around 14 percent each year.” For manufacturers of main electric vehicles, Tesla and Nissan, costs decreased by 8%.

According to investors, only from 2011 per kilowatt-hour battery prices have fallen close to US$ 550 to US$ 450. Tesla and Nissan companies, the trend will be around $300, when the economy really starts to change and the vehicles battery operated masifiquen.

The report noted that the – especially solar – renewable costs are falling rapidly due to the amount of renewable energy capacity achieved in 2014 that easily could have reached its highest point this year.

According to an analysis by McKinsey & Co. This will benefit the economy of electric vehicles that would take the advantage over traditional, thanks to the added value which would have batteries and gasoline prices.

“If battery prices continue to fall, factories can achieve cost reduction by 30%, benefiting the economies of scale and improving manufacturing processes.

According to forecasts, this situation combined with a rise in gas prices, would be enough to make vehicles that run on batteries, to become an economic alternative to internal combustion vehicles which currently predominate.
