The IEA has raised its forecast for renewables compared with a year ago, largely as a result of more solar in China and India, with China already exceeding its 2020 target for new solar power.
Surging solar installations in China and other markets helped the world add almost 165 GW of renewables in 2016, nearly two-thirds of net new power capacity.
In 2016, for the first time in history, solar energy grew faster than any other source of energy.
"We see renewables growing by about 1,000 gw by 2022, which equals about half of the current global capacity in coal power, which took 80 years to build", executive director Birol said.
It said solar will account for the largest annual capacity additions for renewables over the next five years, above both wind and hydro. The world is collectively expected to grow renewable electricity capacity by 43 per cent between 2017 and 2022. Along with India and the USA, the three will be responsible for two-thirds of renewables expansion by 2022.

By 2022, the amount of solar that has been installed globally will exceed the combined total electricity capacity of India and Japan today.
