We’re Generating Far More Renewable Energy than We Think!

  • How much? A lot. For whatever reasons*, we’re not counting a huge amount especially from small individual efforts. This is actually great news. But how much further do we have to go? This is what Counting the Kilowatts is about – to discover how much is being missed (especially the small individual contributions from people like you!) and then how much further we really need to go to make the difference we need to make.
  • For more details on what’s being counted and what’s not, please see the Methodology tab/page and the blog entries.

Counted! What People (Like You!) Are Doing

I have compiled a list of every possible organization that might have data on renewable energy. This became quite a long list for me to use for each country I examine moving forward. I’ll use these sources as thoroughly as possible, so that you can stay informed with the current usage of renewable energy.

(Please note that some of these websites may be temporarily offline or outdated, and I do my best to update them as I go.)

Solar Energy

Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of technologies such as solar power to generate electricity, solar thermal energy, and solar architecture.

Hydro Power

Hydropower, also known as water power, is the use of falling or fast-running water to produce electricity or to power machines. This is achieved by converting the gravitational potential or kinetic energy of a water source to produce power. Hydropower is a method of sustainable energy production.

Wind Power

Wind power or wind energy is mostly the use of wind turbines to generate electricity. Wind power is a popular, sustainable, renewable energy source that has a much smaller impact on the environment than burning fossil fuels.

Other

Renewable energy is energy derived from natural resources that are replenished at a higher rate than they are consumed. Sunlight and wind, for example, are such sources that are constantly being replenished. Renewable energy sources are plentiful and all around us. Some other forms are geothermal, ocean energy, and bioenergy.
