According to the article below, Sweden. They hope not only increase their renewable energy use but to become completely oil free by 2020.
I believe China because of its tremendous increase in use of green technology. They seem to be not using green technology for merely environmental purposes, but for economic purposes. China’s main goal is to better their economy and renewable energy will allow them to expand tremendously.
A group of Western companies says it can foresee a $500 billion to $1 trillion market annually for clean technology in China, according to a report published Thursday meant to highlight how a big new industry might develop in the world’s most populous nation.
The China Greentech Report 2009 outlines over 300 clean energy, construction, transport, water and other businesses that might realistically open in China. The meaty, data-packed report was put together by a group calling itself China Greentech Initiative, made up of more than 80 predominantly large Western companies and organizations with interests in the environmental sector. The headline figure of up to $1 trillion annually reflects revenue the group says ultimately could be generated from widespread adoption of cleaner solutions, a best-case scenario given expectations about China’s growth trajectory. The figures are neither a projection, nor is the report the first attempt to draw attention to the seemingly vast market potential in China. “The story that has emerged is largely an optimistic one, tempered by the complexity of China’s markets and the challenges that must be overcome,” says the report.
China, the world’s fastest-growing resources consumer, and the U.S., the biggest, together generate 40% of global emissions and use a third of the energy. Support by leaders of these countries for corporate clean-technology efforts, at forums such as a major climate conference planned for December in Copenhagen, is therefore considered crucial. Today, without government support, many wind, water, solar and other clean technologies don’t yet make financial sense.
It depends on what you mean by the most. Do you mean the most per capita or the most per production output? If you mean the most people in the country to be utilizing renewable energy, it’s likely a country like Sweden that has massive participation in green initiatives would have the most renewable energy. However, if you are thinking who will provide the most renewable energy, China is definitely leading the way right now, but it’s a race between several countries who will be the top producer. It could be China, it could be the US, or a country in South America or Europe.
