Ranking Countries by Renewable Energy Production Non-renewable energy (also known as finite energy source) as from fossil fuels such as coal, petroleum and natural gas are finite and will eventually be exhausted. That is, it does not renew itself at a sufficient rate for sustainable economic extraction in meaningful human timeframes. However, Renewable energy is replenished naturally. This includes energy from sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural energy services. In this connection, 1-Which of the following countries ranks the highest in renewable energy production in the world? 1. Brazil, 2. Canada, 3. China and 4. United States of America. 2-In Africa, which of the following countries ranks the highest in the production of renewable energy? 1. Egypt, 2. Ghana, 3. Mozambique and 4. Zambia. ANSWERS 1-China is the top rated country in the production of renewable energy in the world with 1,064,337 GWh. 2-Mozambique is the country with the highest level of renewable energy production in Africa with 14,994 GWh,while ranking at 37th position in the world. Nigeria ranks at 68th position in the Worldâ€™s listing of countries by total Renewable Energy production with 5,602 GWh, which is about 22% of the Countryâ€™s total electricity generation.
