Can the world run on clean energy? With technological improvements, it would be possible in near future to send solar power anywhere on the globe even without the help of batteries. For instance, a grid that wraps around the globe could easily do it. Based on Bloomberg NEF forecasts, solar and wind will power half the globe by 2050.
Who leads the world in clean energy? Norway is the largest clean energy producer, as 98.4% of its energy production comes from renewable sources.

Can we have 100% clean energy? U.S. can get to 100% clean energy with wind, water, solar and zero nuclear, Stanford professor says. Stanford professor Mark Jacobson sees a way for the U.S. to meet its energy demands by 2050 with 100% wind, water and solar.
Why does the world need clean energy? Electricity production is our #1 source of greenhouse gases, more than all of our driving and flying combined, and clean energy also reduces harmful smog, toxic buildups in our air and water, and the impacts caused by coal mining and gas extraction.
