    Europe is building more and more wind farms, and many people are utilizing sun panels.  Sun panels are much more common in Europe than in the US.  People have found that even in the rainy, foggy weather of England, sun panels can provide energy efficiently.  In 2006, 9.2% of  Europe’s energy needs were covered through renewable means, and the goal of 20% for 2020 is being aimed for.

    One European country that utilizes geothermal energy is Iceland, due to its position over the mid-Atlantic trench.  In 2008, geothermal power plants produced 24% of Iceland’s electricity, and 87% of homes were warmed and gained their hot water through geothermal means.
