Could the Entire World Really Run on Solar Power?

November 10, 2014

It’s pretty safe to say that we all know that we have to find an alternative to fossil fuels as soon as possible, and the most viable answer to the planet’s energy needs is visible to us any time we look upward. The amount of solar energy that hits just 1 square mile of this planet over the course of a year is equal to 4 million barrels of oil, and the energy that hits the Earth in a mere 40 minutes can fuel all of humanity’s energy needs for a year. Isn’t that incredible? Check out the infographic below to learn more about all the ways that solar power is the way to go, and how we can go about making it a reality worldwide.

Solar heat for cities the sustainable solution for district heating

Infographic | December 19, 2019

SDH is a large field of solar thermal collectors supplying solar energy to the heat network of a neighbourhood, a village or a town. This field is supplemented by a heating centre, which provides additional energy to meet all the heating needs of connected residential, public or office buildings. The heat network can likewise be supplied with surplus energy of collectors installed on the roofs of those buildings.
