Renewable Energy: Which country leads the way?
Major economies are embracing the renewable energy development and are making the shift towards more green resources. Here are the key points to bear in mind:
China leads the way in renewable energy boom
The overall energy consumption in China has doubled over the last decade and will continue to grow very fast in the next few years. See our exclusive forecast.
To answer this rising need, China focused on renewable energy production and is:
The leading producer of wind energy, stepping up its production every year. Get a look at this outstanding increase.
The largest producer of solar energy reaching the highest growth rate yet in March. See 2018 data.
As a result, China has been reducing its dependance on coal: its production has seen a significant decrease these past years. Worth a look
What about the rest of the world ?
Taking the lead in Europe, Germany sees its wind power output quadruple in just 6 years. Check out the remarkable figures.
Being the top producer, the US biofuel production rate in recent years is a proof of its value in America’s energy sector. See for yourself.
But fossil energy continues to dominate global energy consumptions patterns. Among the largest producers of crude oil such as Saudi Arabia, Russia and the US, production levels remain very high. Browse 2018 charts
