G20 leaders agreed to triple the world’s capacity to generate renewable energy by 2030, according to a commitment embodied in the New Delhi summit declaration this Saturday. “We will pursue and encourage efforts to triple global renewable energy capacity through existing targets and policies,” said the statement reached in the Indian capital, “in line with national circumstances by 2030.”
