Project 2 idea

So I was considering the renewable/non-renewable energy situation all over the globe and thought it would be interesting to see the top 10 fossil fuel (oil, coal, etc) producers and consumers vs. the top 10 renewable (wind, solar, etc) energy producers and consumers and come up with an elegant (yet simple) display of all the combined information. I want there to be a strong contrast between non-renewable and renewable but I want it to be a very comprehensive and visually attractive visualization at the same time. So… Any thoughts? Here’s a few resources I’ve found so far and some visualizations that I’m pulling inspiration out of:
