Hello

1-Energy production using renewable resources is now being pursued ''by'' countries around the world, including Turkey.
2-Energy production using renewable resources is now being pursued worldwide, including Turkey.

My first question is if the ''by'' is used correctly in the 1th sentence. Second question is, which one of these (1 and 2) is better to use for acedemic purposes?

<< --- Second question removed --- >>

Thank you!

    "by" is used correctly, and I prefer no.1 as it reflects the idea of each country adopting renewable energy at different times and/or rates - but not necessarily every country.
