Clean energy investments dropped 17 percent in first quarter

A downturn in the US and China paired with the lack of British offshore wind turbines has resulted in a decline in global investments in renewable energy, according to new data. However, the future still holds promise.

Over the first three months of this year, a sum of USD 53.6 billion (EUR 50.4 billion) was invested around the world in renewable energy such as wind, solar, and biomass.
