Iceland almost gets all its electricity from clean sources. Recently, Denmark generated almost 140% of its electricity demand from wind turbines.

The future of renewable energy seems promising. According to a recent analysis by the Renewable Electricity Futures Study , Renewable Energy Can Provide 80 Percent of U.S. Electricity by 2050. Out of the 80%, almost 49–55% of electricity could be provided by wind and solar.
