Uruguay knocks out USA from SolarSuperState top ten 2016
(WK-intern) – SolarSuperState Association Zurich 4.7.2016.
First published 30.6.2016 at “5th International Conference on Energy and Sustainability” in Köln
On 30.6.2015, the SolarSuperState Association published the top ten of its SolarSuperState Ranking 2016 in the 5th International Energy and Sustainability Conference in Köln (Germany). The annual ranking shows how all 197 states of the world performed in the SolarSuperState Competition with the two categories Wind and Solar. The Kingdom of Denmark defends its number one position in the SolarSuperState Ranking 2016 category Wind. It reaches 875 Watt wind power per capita. Germany (3) and Ireland (4) overtake inactive Spain (5). The USA drop out of the top ten in the category Wind. Uruguay (cumulative wind power of 247 Watt per capita) is new in the top ten on rank 9.
The United Kingdom again is not able to enter the top ten, France again even not the top twenty. Except Uruguay, the in the calendar year 2015 shown deployment of wind power of most states still having not reached 100 % renewable electricity would be in future too weak to meet the general SolarSuperState target of 100 % renewable electricity within five years.
The SolarSuperState Association is a Swiss non-profit non-governmental organization that awards the annual SolarSuperState Prize. The association is the global voice of people and organizations that can benefit from rapidly increasing markets for decentralized renewable energy installations.
