More detailed list as to the various methods that the seven top countries in the World are using to implement types of renewable alternative energy.

Renewable Alternative
7 Countries that Use Renewable Alternative Energy the Most.
The increased interest in alternative energy sources is expanding each year, exponentially. Governments and companies alike are seeing alternative energy as not only the most cost effective direction to take, but a business-savvy move.  Thefore, this list will change, based on the financial investment changes that countries around the world make. This article gives an update to the previous article, with some surprising twists on specific countries and their status. To review the true top 7, please read the original article.
Canada.  A rather disappointment occurrence has been the decrease of Canadian investment in alternative energy.  Canada was on the original list of top seven countries, but, due to legislative and individual company investment problems, they have dropped off the list entirely. A large percentage of drop has been in the solar side.
Sweden. This is one of the oldest countries for renewable energy, because Sweden has been advocating against environmentally harmful energy sources for decades. Sweden’s goal is to be totally free from oil by 2020 and it shouldn’t have much trouble meeting this goal. They are investing in hydroelectric, biomass and wind power with a smaller investment in solar.

Denmark. At least 20 percent of Denmark’s energy is currently generated by wind, and biomass also plays an important role. Denmark’s population frequently uses public transportation and vehicle use is also very low. There are also very strict energy requirements for homes and buildings.
India. This country has demonstrated its commitment to renewable energy in recent years. The country has bee very successful in these regards, especially in terms of onshore wind energy generation and the necessary infrastructure development in order to use its widely available alternative energy sources.

Japan. The Japanese are an inventive and intellectual people with very little land mass but an intensity to progress. It is part of their culture to appreciate the land and nature, so it isn’t surprising that they have invested in hydroelectric, wind power, solar and geothermal. The logistics of their country offer good geothermal operations.  Japan is continuing to rebuild their economy after the effects of the earthquakes and tsunami damage.
The United Kingdom. This is one of the countries where renewable energy is delivered in relatively large quantities by offshore wind. This makes sense, considering that the coastal areas of the U.K. are extremely windy. It will be fairly easy and quick to make the switch to alternative energy sources in the UK, using technologies that have already been developed.

Germany. This is the next one in our renewable energy by country list. In recent years Germany has made sizeable investments into renewable energy technology. In 2007 Germany was the global leader in alternative energy use and solar PV production. Both solar and wind energy play a significant role in this country, which makes it thoroughly prepared for the switch to alternative energy.
Spain. It has made significant investments into wind energy, solar energy, and biomass energy. This takes Spain a big step closer to replacing energy generated by fossil fuels, which are notorious for their harmful effects on the environment.

    The US is on the list for two main reasons – the Obama governent has put alternative energy at the top of its list of priorities in the energy sector. Billions of dollars from the stimulous package have been allocated exactly to renewable energy sources. Consequently, in just a couple of years, the US is now on the map as a renewable energy powerhouse. Also, the US is on the list as it is a leader innovator in renewable energy resources – even if it doesn’t actually use them as much as other countries as yet, at least it develops them

    I quite agree with Xeryus. The U.S. is so far behind other developed countries when it comes to renewable energy, it is not even funny. For decades, the greedy oil company has fought tooth and nail against renewable energy, and I don’t think they will be giving up soon.

    You are correct the U.S. probably doesn’t belong on this list, however the author said most prepared to use renewable energy not currently using the most renewable energy. With the U.S. infrastructure and spending ability they are one of the most prepared, but I do agree that we currently do not get nearly enough of our energy from renewable resources and are probably not in the top 7 in the world much less one. I would however put the U.S. in the top 15 though.

    This has to be written by a American, US one of the worst offenders in the world and prepared for renewable energy number 1 spot…what a joke.
    Denmark,Germany,Netherlands,Spain etc yeh common knowledge they lead the way… US….haha

    You have left out little old New Zealand which 66.7% of it’s power comes from renewable resources and we a still getting it higher i think you need to re look your list the US has less the 10% of it’s power come from renewable resource it will take them at least 20 yrs to get that up to 40 %
