Based on the relatively small-scale dimension, Austria is a country that uses marvelous quantity of renewable energy. It is claimed that the various renewable energies have accounted for about 80 % of all Austrian contemporary electricity power generation. Especially, Austria is good at using solar energy that results several famous solar energy specialized firms. For example, GREEN None TEC Solar industrie GmbH plays a vital role in solar thermal collector manufacturing industry. Eighty-five percent of its annual outputs are exported to more than 40 countries and regions around the world with a well-known good quality. Austria also has done a great job on other renewables energy fields such as biomass. Since 1900s, Austrians have been kept …show more content…
By 2015, the renewable energy accounts for 65% of all electricity generated in Canada. Canada has the broad territory and the long coastlines in both west and east, which benefits Canada with a great potential for making further development in application of renewable energy programs. Especially, Wind power, hydraulic power and solar power (both solar photovoltaic and Solar thermal) are the primary choices for Canada doing the renewable energy program. Specially, as a 2006 report reveals, the hydraulic electro generating dams provided 59% of all electricity generated by using renewable energy in Canada. Also, as all we know, a lot of places in Canada have high wind speed. Unsurprisingly, Canada is a leading country in using wind power. Like in 2011, Canada was the 6th largest producer of wind power in the globe. For the weakness, Canada doesn’t adopt as much advanced technology as other developed countries do in these fields. Canada should introduce some advanced technologies from our neighbor the United States .On the other hand, the demand side, the total amount of annual electricity consumed in Canada was often ranked in the top six of the all countries worldwide. The greater and greater demand on electricity will also stimulate the further improvements and developments in renewable …show more content…
Based on its special geographical position, New Zealand’s primary renewable energies are geothermal energy and hydraulic power. Specifically, its position is just at the intersection of 2 tectonic plates which could provide the abundant geothermal energy. Compare to other types of renewable energies, geothermal energy supply is not affected by various volatile weather. Thus, from a country’s security strategy point of view, geothermal energy indeed is a dependable energy supply to choose. Geothermal energy is so important to New Zealand which actually accounted for almost 50% of all the electricity generation. Moreover, as a type of rich energy in New Zealand, lots of other industries also adopt the application of geothermal energy in their own cases. In addition, New Zealand also uses hydraulic power a lot to generate electricity power. For the weakness part, due to the small scale dimension of the country and its specific landscape, the water storage capacity is relatively limited and the annual water flow is volatile in New Zealand. Especially, for the hydraulic electro generation, it adds too many uncertainties to its supply which results New Zealand will not make significant further developments in this undependable hydropower unless this problem of unstable water flow can be settled someday in the
