Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The price of solar falls by a fifth every time capacity doubles, the association adds. As capacity is ramped up in sunnier parts of the world, costs will continue to fall and government support regimes should be a thing of the past.

However, given International Energy Association estimates that fossil fuel subsidies currently total more than $400bn, six times the amount of support for clean energy, this may be wishful thinking.
