It’s difficult to get a global consensus on anything these days, but renewable energy and solar are exceptions.
There is great support for green energy, according to a new survey. Specifically, eight out of 10 people said the world should be run entirely on renewable energies, including solar. In China, 93 percent of those surveyed said it’s important to create a future in which energy relied upon these “rich and clean resources.”
Taiwan, Germany, Canada, Denmark, France, U.S., U.K., Netherlands and Poland round out the top 10 countries that support green energy.
The CEO of the company that conducted the survey, which included 26,000 people across 13 countries, says the findings correlate with a tipping point within the industry. Green energies are becoming more affordable and support from the public has never been higher. Climate change may also be a reason so many individuals are supporting green energy. Nearly 70 of those surveyed, expressed concern about climate change.
Citizens in the various countries also believe that their nation should invest in green energy to help boost the economy and create jobs.
Here are more detailed responses from those surveyed in the U.S.:
- 83 percent believe it is important to create a world fully powered by renewable energy.
- 73 percent say they will be proud if the U.S. invests time and money to become a global leader in green energy.
