Washington (CNN Business) - Renewable energy, led by solar power, could make up 80% of the growth in electricity generation over the next decade, according to a report published last week.

The International Energy Agency said it is now consistently cheaper to generate electricity by capturing the sun’s energy than by burning coal or natural gas in most countries.

Solar photovoltaic cells are now one of the cheapest sources of electricity thanks to maturing technologies and policies that have reduced the cost of investments, the Paris-based agency said.
