Each year, the International Energy Agency spends months preparing an analysis of the global energy economy and where it's heading. The report takes into account economic, technological, and policy developments, and it tries to project the trends that will drive our energy use for decades. This year's report suggests that a combination of economics and policy will drive an explosion in renewables, making them the largest power source built between now and 2040.
