Globally, renewables accounted for an estimated 9.1% of the world's electricity generation.
Achim Steiner, Unep executive director, observed: "Once again in 2014, renewables made up nearly half of the net power capacity added worldwide.
China was by fair the biggest investor, pumping a record US$83.3bn into the sector - up by more than a third on its 2013 financing.
The US was second, investing US$38.3bn. Japan was a close third with US$35.7bn.
