The solar and wind industries remained the driving force behind growth in investment in the global renewable energy sector. The report, produced by the Frankfurt School-Unep Collaborating Centre for Climate and Sustainable Energy Finance and Bloomberg New Energy Finance, showed that investment in renewables in developing nations exceeded that in developed countries. The developing world committed a total of $156bn (up 19% on 2014 levels) in renewables (excluding large hydro) while developed nations invested $130bn (down 8% from 2014 levels).
