In 2012 Europe’s renewable energy investment was down 44%; China continued to grow, albeit at a slower pace. Even with an overall decline in investment, China—for the first time—invested more in renewable energy than all of Europe combined, with the result that it invested more in renewable power capacity than in fossil fuels. Despite China’s impressive growth, Europe still has the largest market volume for renewables worldwide. In 2004 India and China were roughly even with regards to invest- ment levels however India failed to establish a reliable invest- ment climate for renewables, with the result that eight years later China’s renewable energy market was 10-fold that of the Indian market volume. In 2012, the Middle East and Africa overtook India and are now important markets for the renewable industry. By the end of 2013 investment in renewable energy was also on the rise in Latin America as well as South-East Asia and Oceania. 2004200520062007200820092010201120122013 2004200520062007200820092010201120122013 2004200520062007200820092010201120122013 2004200520062007200820092010201120122013
