Seven countries now generate all their energy from renewable sources, according to statistics from the International Energy Agency (IEA) and International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). More than 99.7 percent of electricity in Albania, Bhutan, Ethiopia, Iceland, Nepal, Paraguay and the Democratic Republic of Congo comes from geothermal, hydro, solar, or wind power.

An additional 40 countries got at least half of their electricity from such renewable energy sources in 2021 and 2022. Other countries, including Germany and Portugal, can run exclusively on renewables for limited times.
