With so much advancements in the industry of clean energy; more and more countries are drawing to shift their energy production towards the right path. This right path has benefits on both, long and short term basis. With the fact that clean energy is cheaper, it also is capable of producing little to no pollution at all, as well as no harmful emissions in the environment to cause global warming.
According to latest reports; China is among those countries which is investing more and more in renewables to adopt the clean energy production techniques with U.S second on the list. No less than 100GW of production plants were built in year 2013 and the figures have never stopped since then.
Following are the five countries who have benchmarked their energy production by deploying clean energy production ways;
Denmark: Wind Power
In the year 2014, Denmark managed to produce 39 percent of its total energy by wind power only; this was considered a world record. Denmark futuristic goal includes producing 50 percent of energy needs by using renewables till 2020 whereas converting it to 100 percent by 2050. Not only this, Denmark is providing electricity to its locality in cheapest possible way.
United Kingdom: Wind Power
In the year 2014, UK managed to produce 15 percent of its total energy by wind power only and this was the highest in its history. As of now, United Kingdom has managed to supply enough electricity to no less than 6.7 million households residing in United Kingdom. Production of energy by turbines has risen up to 9.3% from 7.8% in the last year.
Germany: Renewable Energy Sources
More than 26% of the country’s need of electricity and power was filled by energy from renewable energy. Not only this, this has brought a lot of positivity in economy of Germany and it has managed to become the country with largest economy in the Europe.
Scotland: Renewable Energy Sources
In 2014, Scotland produced energy from renewable energy sources that encompasses more than 164 percent of the need of the households. And as a matter of fact, monthly report suggested that almost 98 percent of the need of the Scottish are fulfilled by using wind power only. And this is not all, in few states of Scotland, they have managed to provide 100 percent of the electricity by using the energy from the sun only.
To be real honest, this country has a capability to shift their energy to fully renewable sources by the end of 2030 which will end up their dependency on fossil fuels.
Ireland: Wind Power
Ireland is a country with windy environment and it has managed to utilize this kind of wind in their own favor. Within few months they have managed to rely on the electricity developed from clean energy sources. They produced 1942 MW of energy which is enough to fulfil the energy requirements of 1.26 million households.
It is only the matter of adopting and then your needs can also be fulfilled by investment in the right area.
