Current status of renewable energy development in China and US is analyzed via comparative studies. Past trend for each country is analyzed based on data in the past twenty years or so. The trajectory for the renewable energy development is different. In order to meet the demand of renewable energy and protect environment, a mathematical model is established to forecast the renewable energy consumption. This model exhibits characteristics of essential physical concept and provides predictions for rapid growth in renewable energy consumption in the future. Furthermore, if China and the US can jointly develop the renewable energy, there will be mutual benefits. Areas of co-development are explored in terms of technologies, markets and investments. This study may provide insightful information on renewable energy consumption in the future.
