Around 43% of the country’s electricity is originated from solar energy.Spain
Even though the country is weakened by the Euro zone crisis, solar industry is still quite resilient in Spain.

Japan used to rely heavily on nuclear energy. However, right after the Fukushima disaster, there has been a huge boom in solar industry in Japan as there is a huge demand for safe and affordable energy.
