Top 10 Big Renewable Energy Companies Around the Globe

Once a niche segment of the broader energy industry, renewable energy is rapidly growing to become an essential energy source in many regions and countries around the globe. Clean and renewable energy, including solar, wind, hydroelectric, geothermal, and biomass, is generated by companies within the industry. The biggest renewable energy companies have their headquarters in Spain and Denmark, but there are other significant players in China, the United States, and Canada.
