KENYA Kenya has ramped up their geothermal energy dependence from 13% of Kenya’s total electricity use in 2010, to 51% in 2015. Kenya also holds a bright future on wind energy by putting up Africa’s largest wind farm, set to provide 310 MW of power which comprises another 20% of the country’s installed electricity capacity.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Quite a feat in solar power is that of the United States of America: in 2014, a new solar energy system is installed every two minutes and 30 seconds, which earned them the fifth place on the installed solar PV capacity worldwide. Not only does the US specialize in solar, but also wind: they have the second highest installed wind energy capacity in the world. But there is some imbalance between electricity generation and demand, with only 13 percent of the country’s electricity in 2014 coming from renewables. Photo by Recharge News
