This sees an improvement from the situation five years ago, where the wind and solar only accounted for five percent (5%) of global electricity in 2015.
Germany’s electricity takes the lion share of achievement to this feat; making the country to sit well above the global figure with wind and solar generating an impressive forty-two (42%) of its electricity from January through June in the current 2020 year.
Followed closely is the United Kingdom, who made giant strides in recent years and its figure is thirty-three (33%) of its electricity being generated from wind and solar.

Turkey, also make the list, sitting comfortably on fourth position with thirteen percent (13%) of its electrical power coming from wind and solar.
Brazil completes the top ten list, as it contends with other world economic powerhouse, for a sixth (6th) position on the log, generating ten percent (10%) of its energy from wind and solar.
Germany’s electricity will give other countries of the world the much needed morale to look inward and generate safer and consistent electrical energy for consumption. Most especially, countries in Africa who enjoy more sunlight than the rest of the world, example include Nigeria, Ghana and other West African countries.
