This article is a list of countries by electricity production from renewable sources every year. Note that most countries import and/or export electricity, so the percentage figures do not reflect the percentage of consumption that is renewable based.

World top 10 renewable electricity producers[edit]

Measurements are in TW·h/year (terawatt-hours per year), equal to 1 billion kilowatt-hours per year.
