More than 80% believe world should run only on renewables

2017.11.17     From: New Energy Update

Eighty-two percent of people believe the world should run entirely on renewable energy, according to a survey of people in 13 countries commissioned by Denmark’s Ørsted (formerly Dong Energy).


Support came from all surveyed age groups, educational backgrounds countries and political segments, Orsted said. Of the countries covered in the survey, support was highest in China, at 93%, and lowest in Japan, at 73%. Some 83% of Americans said they support a world completely powered by green energy.




Henrik Poulsen, CEO of Ørsted said, “We’re at a tipping point. Green energy has become cheaper than black, and the newly released Green Energy Barometer shows an overwhelming public support for a shift from black to green. We owe it to the planet and to future generations to transform our energy systems from black to green. And with the economics and public opinion now supporting a shift to renewable energy, there’s no reason not to speed up the transformation.”


Edelman Intelligence, a global insights and consultancy firm, conducted the research on Ørsted's behalf. More than 2,000 interviews were conducted in each country, with 26,401 people interviewed in total.
