Germany to break the 22GW world record of solar power
IWR, the Norbert Allnoch, Director said, "any other country on Earth, solar power generation capacity of more than 20,000 megawatts of electricity factory, Germany several times to close 20GW mark in recent weeks, but this is the first time we . "
Follow a bell-shaped curve in the day and night cycle in the demand for electricity in Germany, low power at night, demand for electricity during the day, a sharp increase in uniform again until noon, night fell. allnoch said, "It has often been underestimated, the sun brings a significant power, if and when needed most."
According to Reuters, Germany's far better to combine the parts of the world's solar generating capacity and annual only 4% of the overall demand for electricity from the sun. It is designed to cut greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels by 40% in 2020.
Overthrow the policy of nuclear last year due to the Fukishima disasters last year, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, has retired, and the remaining six nuclear power plants, be closed by 2022.
However, Merkel's renewable energy program is not without obstacles. The critics complain that solar power increased by an additional price of electricity of about $ 0.02 per kWh, the electricity price in Germany slashed. The new feed in tariff payments came into effect on April 1 rooftop PV power plant was brought to the Prime Minister in the solar industry subsidies cut by Bunderstrat stopped in its tracks just under two weeks ago. Merkel Energiewende "program settings back to speed up, was fired after his failure is the successor of Prime Minister of North Rhine - Westphalia and Norbert Röttgen. Merkel nominated Peter Altmaier, the Conservative Party parliamentary whip, to replace the Röttgen.
allnoch said, "This shows that Germany is able to meet a larger share of its electricity, solar power needs, it also shows that Germany can use less coal-fired power plants, gas plants and nuclear power plants."
