Europe as a whole is leading in the use of Renewable Electricity.
However, there are big differences between European countries.
In Austria, Sweden, Portugal and Latvia nearly half, or even more, of the electricity consumption is from renewable sources.
While in other countries, such as Malta, Luxembourg, the UK and the Netherlands, less than 10% of it is from such sources.
Interestingly, there is no clear difference between Northern and Southern Europe, or between Western and Eastern Europe. Some countries with strong economies and a reputation for ecology are doing very poorly in this respect, while some countries considered to be far poorer are doing amazingly well.
