Sources of electricity – Are we going green?

via Pontiac2:

This is just my first tough – Green is expensive and most of world is undeveloped compared to EU and NA. So most of world is uninterested in green and expensive energy. Especially when they can have cheaper gas power plants that can be easily converted to coal or oil ones in case of crisis.

And data seems to confirm this to a degree – Even though there is growth in Renewable, its mainly in EU and US.

I wrote a bit longer post on my blog. So if you want to read it and look at more detailed charts, go HERE.
