Renewable energy has seen growth rates of 30 percent to 40 percent over recent years but coal has met 47 percent of global new electricity demand over the past decade. Furthermore, Fossil fuels received $312 billion in subsidies as of 2009 compared to $57 billion for renewable energy. Overall cost of renewable energy is by no means lower than fossil fuel, unless you are counting the cost of environmental damage.
