Graph of Top Global Biofuels Producing Nations in 2012
As you can see in the above graph, the leading nations in biofuel production in 2012 were the U.S. followed by Brazil, Germany, Argentina, France and China. All other individual nations were below the level of three percent.
Biofuels are one part of the renewables category of energy, as defined by the BP report, along with wind and solar. In 2012, the renewables category provided 2.4% of global energy consumption, up from .8% in 2002. A record was set in renewables used for global power generation, at 4.7% last year. Global biofuels, however, saw the first decline in production since 2000.
