In recent years the Asian Pacific nations were making up over 75 per cent of power demand growth around the world and was the leading region for installations of wind and solar technologies.
New wind power projects are under threat as the coronavirus has caused a delay and shortage for components such as turbine blades.
Reduced usage of electricity during Britain’s lockdown period could cause problems to the countries power grid, the UK energy system operator has warned.
The recent drop in air pollution alongside cool, sunny weather in Britain has led to an all time high of 9.69 gigawatts of solar power being generated last Monday.

The demand for electricity in the UK decreased by 10 per cent in the last week after the nation was put into a lockdown to help stop the spread of the coronavirus by the government.
Offshore wind turbine projects along with new onshore ventures in China and the United States have provided one of the strongest recorded years for wind power.
Renewable energy sources, wind and solar power, will soon be cheaper than the existing cost for coal fired power, a recent report claims.
