Let’s Power The Future-Here Comes The Sun.!

  • Buffer

After the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the German government decided to abandon nuclear power, closing eight plants immediately and shutting down the remaining nine by 2022. Their solar power plants were able to produce a world record 22 Giga watts of electricity per hour - equal to 20 nuclear power stations at full capacity..!!

If they can do it, why can't we? Wind energy alone could provide enough power ten times over to provide for all of our needs!

Nuclear plants will be replaced by renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and bio-mass. 22 Giga watts of solar power per hour fed into the German power grids, met nearly 50 percent of the nation's midday electricity needs.

It should be seen as a great auger for bright, clean and safe energy environment for the entire world and hope for every developing and underdeveloped countries to cut their huge cost, they are bearing for energy requirements.
Here Comes The Sun !

Never before anywhere has a country produced as much photovoltaic electricity. Germany came close to the 20 GW mark a few times in recent weeks. But this was the first time they made it over. The record-breaking amount of solar power shows one of the world's leading industrial nations was able to meet a third of its electricity needs on a work day, Friday, and nearly half on Saturday when factories and offices were closed.
Government-mandated support for renewable has helped Germany became a world leader in renewable energy and the country gets about 20 percent of its overall annual electricity from those sources.

Germany has nearly as much installed solar power generation capacity as the rest of the world combined and gets about four percent of its overall annual electricity needs from the sun alone. It aims to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent from 1990 levels by 2020.


Solar Power Evolution
Some critics say renewable energy is not reliable enough nor is there enough capacity to power major industrial nations. But Germany is eager to demonstrate that is indeed possible.

The jump above the 20 GW level was due to increased capacity this year and bright sunshine nationwide. The 22 GW per hour figure is up from about 14 GW per hour a year ago. Germany added 7.5 GW of installed power generation capacity in 2012 and 1.8 GW more in the first quarter for a total of 26 GW capacities.

This shows Germany is capable of meeting a large share of its electricity needs with solar power, it also shows Germany can do with fewer coal-burning power plants, gas-burning plants and nuclear plants.

This should be an eye opener of the nations involved in dangerous nuclear deals or in nuclear plantation. What for and where they are heading for to keep their promise of giving light to people or disastrous, dangerous and unlivable environment to their gen –next. 

 Hopes lies everywhere and trends, for what have been achieved so far, are also in favor, now one need a strong will power to get the things on track for better tomorrow.
