    The demand for renewable energy is increasing, and so is the popularity of renewable energy sources. Renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, hydropower, biomass, and geothermal, are replenished naturally and are not depleted through use. Currently, 30% of the world’s electricity is produced from these sources. Moreover, 65% of the countries still use fossil fuels to produce electricity, while 31% use renewable sources. The remaining 4% use nuclear energy. This increase in the use of multiple
