Renewable energy is growing in popularity across the globe, and with good reason—the benefits of renewable energy sources are widespread. Finding alternative energy sources that don’t require the use of fossil fuels can lower energy costs for consumers, create more stable and reliable energy prices, and make electricity more available throughout the world. Furthermore, climate change is proving to be a very expensive ordeal—costing $240 billion in economic losses in the United States alone—and renewable energy has a significantly smaller impact on climate change compared to the burning of fossil fuels. Clearly, investing in renewable energy has economic benefits. Let’s look at how three regions around the world are faring in their journey to use more alternative energy sources.
