Denmark's wind farms produced 140% of what it needed to to power the country, so it exported the extra to Norway, German, and Sweden, making it the most bad ass country ever in terms of renewable energy.

In 2014, Denmark announced their plans to end burning fossil fuels altogether by 2050. An inspiration to hopefuls around the globe, Denmark shows it isn't impossible to vastly reduce our dependence on oil.

“It shows that a world powered 100% by renewable energy is no fantasy,” Oliver Joy of the European Wind Energy Association told The Guardian. “Wind energy and renewables can be a solution to decarbonization—and also security of supply at times of high demand.”
