TOP 6 COUNTRIES IN SOLAR ENERGY (2021)
Solar energy has so many benefits and used by the developed countries of the world already. It has multiple advantages due to which so many popular countries have decided to utilize this renewable energy.
However, using solar power to run the appliances is not harmful to the environment and cut the cost. Different countries have shown interest in photovoltaic solar power to generate environmentally friendly energy for daily use.
In this article, we¡¯ll discuss the top countries of the world utilizing solar energy for daily usage.
As we all know, china is the superpower and always comes up with new yet unique technologies. This country has the biggest solar energy capacity as compared to other top countries in the world. They can produce and utilize 130 gigawatts of solar energy that is quite high.
Furthermore, China has still recorded as the one with the largest operational solar projects that can produce 1527 MW. No doubt, this country is the only one that can manufacture the huge solar panel.
However, the target of developing solar projects is high in 2020, and most probably, they will install the highest solar panels. Due to this, the carbon footprints plus pollution is quite reduced in their country. Moreover, China will be the first country to have a next-level environment-friendly energy source.
2. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
The next in the list is the America that ruled over the world for many years. No doubt, the USA is the home to most of the largest solar plants. It is the second-largest country that is using renewable energy daily.
With the increase in electricity prices, America has decided already to cut the cost by utilizing solar energy. However, the high amount of sunrise in the USA encourages them to shift towards solar power.
Despite Donald Trump¡¯s decision to resign from the Paris agreement, many solar projects in the USA are expected to provide benefits in the coming years. Furthermore, the state-level policies have already made to distribute solar panels at a high amount in upcoming years.
Japan is the 3rd largest country to have an excellent amount of solar panels. Due to advanced technology and incredible manufacturing industries, this country has already decided to develop the solar panels.
The Japnese government is working to increase renewable energy use 15-25% in 2018, and the percentage will rise by 2030. The country has already reached the 28GW-58GW in 2020 and will expand in 2030.
However, in 2009 the Japanese Govt. spend $9 billion on the extension of solar panels in the country. In the same year, they installed solar power in 32000 public schools to generate awareness and eliminate environmental pollution.
The key leader in the production of solar energy for so many years is Germany definitely. It is no doubt the country that has the highest rank in getting Solar PV per capita every year.
Furthermore, the German Govt priority is to reduce 80% of electricity through renewable sources, and this year, they get the goal. However, in mid of 2018, the country produced 7% of the solar power and has 39% renewable source shares.
They¡¯ve planned to install the thousands of solar panels to increases the amount of solar energy in the country by 2050. Undoubtedly, they are the top buying of solar energy and will reach the highest rank in the upcoming years.
Spain does not reach the level of countries mentioned above but still making the highest effort to use renewable energy more and more in the past few years.
However, Spain was used to be the leader for solar energy, but in 2009, Germany took its place. Furthermore, the country¡¯s rank gets lower due to the economic crisis that reduced the demand for energy.
Now 10% of Spain¡¯s energy comes from solar panels, which is more than the other countries. Spain is thinking of increases the percentage in the future and starts planning already.
6. UNITED KINGDOM
UK govt. Has already taken the initiative to introduce solar panels in homes, schools, and multiple business platforms.
Furthermore, due to the low cost of PV technology, the UK took the benefit and made its way in the list of top countries using solar power. This country has 3.1% solar power generation in 2016 that increases to 3.4% in 2017.
However, the Govt. has decided to deliver the 4 million homes of solar power this year. Furthermore, the percentage will increase in the future.
In this article, we¡¯ve discussed the top countries around the globe that is using solar power.
No doubt the solar energy usage and production increase to a vast amount each year. The top developed countries are taking all the initiatives to make their country pollution-free.
