Challenge #2: Garnering investment in renewable energy sources

Global investments in renewable energy sources are encouraging but it isn’t enough to substitute them for fossil fuels. Today, with the growing preference for renewable energy sources, there are a lot of investment opportunities that have emerged. However, investing in renewable energy sources tends to be very risky due to the combination of changing political headwinds or tailwinds and developing technologies. But there are ways to minimize the risk and boost ROI only if you know where to look.

Challenge #3: Rate-of-conversion problem

Replacing the current energy infrastructure with those that support renewable energy is a monumental task for governments across the globe. If clean energy is to reduce the effects of climate change, it needs to replace fossil fuels within a very limited timeframe. The issue of having enough renewable energy sources to meet the energy demands before the effects of global warming become severe is known as the rate-of-conversion problem. This problem can be addressed if the production of renewable energy increases significantly.
