Renewable Energy by Country

Worldwide there is a keen interest in clean and renewable sources of energy. Countries today are quite aware that energy sources must be replenished, and that to make life on Earth sustainable the atmosphere should be protected from contaminations.

In this website we will show the current situation regarding energy consumption and energy sources for individual world countries. The data will be updated and expanded based on the information we receive from the various local sources.

Other sections of the website will cover the Renewable Energy Sources that are available today in the world. Below is a short summary of the main renewable energy associations in the world. The renewable energy sources will be covered in greater detail in the corresponding sections of the website. The top menu bar features links to the specific sections.

Renewable Energy Sources:

    Solar power is the conversion of energy from the sun into electricity. Several technologies for this purpose have been developed.

    Wind is another form of solar energy. The wind flow is motion energy, that is harvested by modern wind turbines, that are used to generate electricity.

    Geothermal energy is the heat from the Earth. It is a clean and sustainable resource available in certain locations around the world.

    Hydropower or water power is power derived from the energy of falling or fast running water, which may be harnessed for useful purposes.

    The ocean covers 75% of the earth and can produce two types of energy: thermal energy from the heat of sunlight, and mechanical energy from the tides and the waves of the ocean. Tidal energy exploits the natural ebb and flow of coastal tidal waters caused principally by the interaction of the gravitational fields of the earth, moon and sun.

    Biomass is organic material that comes from plants and animals, it is a renewable source of energy. Biomass contains stored energy from the sun. Examples are: wood and wood processing waste, agricultural crops and their waste materials, animal manure and human sewage. All these biomasses can be converted into biogas, and burned as a fuel.

    Ethanol fuel is a sustainable energy resource that is intended to provide a more environmentally and economically friendly alternative to fossil fuels such as diesel and gasoline. Ethanol fermentation is a chemical process that converts feedstocks such as corn, barley, and sugarcane into ethanol.

    A fuel cell is an electrochemical energy device that converts hydrogen and
    oxygen into electricity, heat, and water.

    Natural gas occurs deep beneath the surface of the earth. It consists mainly of methane, but may contain small amounts of hydrocarbon gas liquids. Like oil and coal, natural gas is NOT a renewable energy source.
