Germany gets 50 percent momentary electricity needs from solar panels




Germany earlier this month put a new record in the field of solar energy. On June 9, more than 50 percent of the elektriciteisbehoefte was on that day generated by solar panels. Germany is the world leader with regard to generating solar energy.

According to the Fraunhofer Institute 23.1 gigawatt was generated on June 9 as reports Physorg. It was at that time accounted for 50.6 percent of the electricity needs. In addition, the caveat must be placed so that June 9 is a holiday in Germany; it is known that there are on average less than electricity is consumed.

Generating 23.1 gigawatts means no record regarding the greatest power generated: a few days earlier, on June 6, aroused Germany in the afternoon at 24.24 gigawatts. In the same week, a total of 1.24 terawatt hours of electricity generated from solar panels.

Germany has long been the world leader in the field of solar energy. This is mainly because the German government has allocated for subsidizing solar panels much money. Netherlands gives significantly less solar energy and does not appear in the list of major producers of electricity from solar panels, with a share of the electricity needs of up to a few percent. However, taking the production of solar energy in the Netherlands increased.
