Solar energy generation is seen as key for the general move away from fossil fuels (Nature, CNET). The question will be suspended on 29 February 2024 and the outcome determined using installed capacity data (for the year, not cumulative) as reported by the IEA in its 2024 Snapshot of Global PV Markets, expected in early spring of 2024 (IEA PV Power Systems Programme - Snapshot Reports). In 2022, 240 GW of PV electrical capacity was installed around the world (IEA - Snapshot of Global PV Markets 2023, see Figure 1, ShopSolar - Gigawatt definition).
