The Five Most Attractive Nations For Renewable Investments Part One: The United States, A Nation Divided
By Roy L Hales
Climate Change is upon us. The signs are everywhere, for anyone not actively denying them. So are the avenues to change our planet for the better, though some nations have not yet resolved to pursue them. So who are the 7 most attractive nations for renewable investments?
The biggest news to come out of the US Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) report for August, is that utility solar’s production of electricity is up 93.6% over last year. This is the principal reason that the renewable contribution is up 9.6% and only half of the story. The EIA does not record production from rooftop solar (which means solar’s overall contribution is significantly higher) and production figures are down in every fossil fuel sector. This trend is also seen in the latest figures from Germany, where solar production is up 7.7%, wind 8% and biomass 11% over last year. The data contradicts several myths about Renewable energy.
