The Leaders of Renewable Energy
In this video, you will learn about an energy company. Energy companies are constantly scrutinized by the public for not being sustainable. It has been a competition for many companies to outdo others in terms of sustainability. Governments are building solar farms to generate solar power. Which countries are leading in renewable energy? In 2018, more than 1/4 of the world’s energy was renewable.
Renewable energy can come from many sources. The most common are hydro and solar. Solar power is not that straightforward. Unpredictable cloud cover hinders solar energy. China, Brazil, the U.S., and Germany have the most renewable sources in the world. It is no coincidence that these countries also make the most energy and pollution. This only makes up a small portion of their overall mix. Iceland is the world leader in energy consumption. The most telling trait in the Nordic countries is their low energy usage. For big oil-producing nations, renewable energies are basically nonexistent. Norweigh has many wind turbines. For many people who are environmentally aware, wind turbines are known to disrupt wildlife. Specifically, when birds migrate. Wind turbines tend to mess with migration due to their height in the sky.
