BNEF estimates that global capital costs for PV and onshore wind have dropped by 15% and 14% respectively in the last 12 months, in response to fierce competition in manufacturing, and technology improvements…Outside solar and wind, other clean energy sectors saw modest flows in 2Q…” click here for more
