The United States and Spain, both look good in green!
According to the latest Ernst & Young Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index, the United States is the most attractive nation for those seeking to invest in renewable energy with Spain closely following behind.
Out of a possible score of 100, the U.S scored a 71 in the “all renewables index” while Spain scored 68. The indices are broken down by different types of renewable energies which include solar, wind and bio-mass, but also include an index rating the renewable energy infrastructure of a particular country.
Although Spain is still number one in terms of renewable energy infrastructure with a score of 78, the U.S. is not far behind with a score of 76.
All in all, for us, what’s important to note is not the two or three point differential in the scores, but rather to understand that with the largest economy in the world taking renewable energy more and more seriously with each passing day, its relationship with Spain in this field is bound to grow.
