Every country needs to generate power. While most of us are concerned with how to save money on our electric bill, many developing countries spend their time trying to create enough power for their citizens. These “failed states” that can’t maintain continuous power have to resort to power shortages (i.e. cutting power) in order to save the overall power supply. Even as much as energy is in the news, we bet these are 25 electrifying statistics about energy that will surprise you.
So, how do nations provide power? Generally, national governments have a lot to do with power generation. They have a vested interest in providing power to their people and making sure the power grid reaches all parts of the nation. With global warming and climate change being important topics of debate, and past sources of energy like coal on the way out, countries are switching to more sustainable and renewable sources of energy like water, air, and geothermal energy. The goal is to create a power grid that doesn’t create CO2 and pollute the atmosphere while making it sustainable. These are 25 electrifying statistics about energy that will surprise you!
